an interesting side note in my delivery...my water breaks and it looks brownish. i worry. i call the mw while i am having a contraction she's like "oh, honey...calm down...i hear you breathing all heavy...you aren't in labor yet, go back to sleep!" and i tell her that i know i am and that i'm worried about the pea soup color of my water. she continues to be condescending and asks me if i've felt ds move and i of course i hadn't even noticed if i had or not but i got really scared. so finally she's like ok i'll call the hospital and tell them you're on your way. in the car my labor gets crazy and i arrive at the hospital and the really sweet nurse looks surprised when i tell her my name and she says "oh, you're in labor...nancy told me you weren't!" (first-time moms get NO credit!!) i get into the room and hooked up to the fetal heart rate monitor, she checks my cervix (ouch!!) and i'm 5cm dilated. after 20 mintues she says baby looks fine. then here's the kicker...she smiles and tells me "you'd better hurry to the birth center, you don't want to give birth here!"
