My water broke!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
At about 620pm. I'm so excited because I was scheduled to receive the gel tomorrow at 9am and I thought and prayed all day that I would go naturally before that. And what do you know, my water broke, yipee! I'm only having sporadic contractions but hopefully those will pick up. I called the hospital and they said to come and get checked so I did and I was really impressed. They checked my record and found out I was GBS negative (I just had the swab last wednesday and didn't know the result) so they confirmed it was my water by testing the pad, not by checking me, no cervix check, checked the baby's heartrate for a bit and said go ahead home and just come back when you feel you need to. I was really happy with the no stress, non interventive attitude. So, I'm going to just hang out and wait! I know it can't be too long now.

That is so great that you weren't admitted and given the 24 hour countdown that you would probably get in the US! I hope we have a new babe to welcome soon!!! :

Yea! That's exciting. Often contractions pick up overnight and peter out during the day, so you might be prepared for that.

Update

Nothing much happened til about midnight. It's almost 230am now and contractions are about 6-7 minutes apart and I gotta say, I forgot how toe curling-ly painful they can be (especially when water is already broken). I envy the mamas that confuse their contractions with gas pains. Will work through as long as I can and then head to the hospital (it's over a 1/2 hour drive). Thanks for the support mamas. I'll come back for a birth story when I can!
