My water broke about an hour ago, around 1245.  There's no question, I'm pouring fluid!  There is light meconium, unfortunately, but hopefully that won't cause any trouble.  I had been contracting every 3-5 minutes for a few hours, but I figured it was the same old prodromal junk, and then POP.  I called my mw, but didn't think she needed to come over yet.  I'm now contracting every 2-3 min, and they huuurrt.  DH just brought me the phone, because of how I look during a ctx, lol!  I think I'll call her back...

 

See you one the flip side!


Copper- wife to B, mama to DS1 Jeb 12.4.07, and DS2 William 8.11.11.  So thrilled to be expecting a surprise baby 10.26.14!!!
