I had a dream last night that my water broke while we were in our truck on the way home from the store. when I woke up and remembered the dream, I realized what a total bummer it would be if that really did happen, seeing as we *finally* have a nice, new truck.

So, just in case, I've put a garbage bag and a few towels in the truck. That way, if my water does happen to break when we're out and about, I can slip a garbage bag onto the seat and have a few towels to sit on so our seat doesn't get ooky.

Good idea. So much weird stuff to think about in these last few weeks.

Funny. I sat on a towel in the car for the last month of my first pregnancy. I had the towel IN the car for the last few weeks of my second pregnancy. I haven't even given it a second thought for #3! So maybe I'm in for it!!

But statistically it's more likely for babies to come at night, and I don't really go out at night any more. Plus, only a small percentage of women have their water break as their first sign of labor (but that's been me, twice). So I just figure it'll happen at home, not in the middle of Whole Foods at 10am! We'll see if my luck holds!

my water broke with dd#1 and it was such a trickle I wans't sure if I had peed a bit (not that that had happened before) or if it broke. I had a sawp done and it broke. It continued to trickle throughout the next 12 hrs. I wouldn't be too worried but always better to be safe than sorry.

I just read that in only 15 % of labor does the water break before you know you are in labor. That made me feel a little better since I was a bit paranoid.
