Baby was born approx 18 hours after that.
I was only 35+5 weeks along. I was so freaked out- I woke DH up in a panic asking him over and over, "Is it blood? Is it blood? Is it blood?"

With DS2 I asked my OB to break the water while I was in the pushing stage. The pressure of the sack was too much for me to be able to push DS2 out. DS2 was born a few minutes after the OB broke my water.
#2: AROM by mw at home moments before DS was born due to bulging bag of water in the way.
Both times it was remarked that I had an extremely tough amniotic sac.
