I thought my water was leaking and I was right.  I lay down on my side for a bit and then GUSH!  My water broke!  I ran to the toilet and it gushed out.  Clear and full of vernix!  Waiting for ctx to pick up and start sucking.  love.gif

So excited for you Carrie. Hope things are picking up by now and you have an easily managed labor.

 

I guess you and Michelle will be having babies on the same day then!

Thanks ladies.  So far just the same ctx, nothing too horrible yet.  My mw was just here and we chatted and she took my vitals.  Baby sounds good and is a good position.  She said rest, go about my day (which is really annoying with broken waters), eat normally, and let her know when things get active.  OMG this is really happening!  One way or another, this baby is coming!  Waiting for ctx to pick up is about as interesting as watching paint dry, though.  LOL!
