My stepdad had surgery on his broken neck this morning (which went well). I was in the recovery room when I felt a kick, then a gush of water. I rushed into the bathroom where water continued to pour out into the toilet.
Not wanting my parents to worry about me when my stepdad just had a metal plate attached to his spine, I told my mom and stepdad I needed to get home and basically ran out. I'm home now with lots of clear fluid continuing to gush out. No contractions yet but we're cleaning the house and setting up the pool.
My water has never broken before pushing! It was like a scene from TV. I should have been one of the moms to pack a change of clothes, LOL.
I said this baby would be born on the 17th or 27th because both my boys have bdays that are the same forward and back-- 1/31 and 12/21 so she needs to be 7/17 or 7/27. Just a weird little thought.
Alright labor... I'm ready! Wish I hadn't been up at 7 to go to the hospital for my stepdad's surgery.

Still no contractions! I cleaned the house, took a shower, ate lunch, and inflated the pool... come on baby!

Amy, I don't think the hospital he's in even has an L&D; it's a suburban satellite of a city hospital.

6 hours later and I'm getting impatient! I don't want to be up all night! What's the hold up here?!
I am just not a napper so I can't nap. It takes me an hour+ to get to sleep at night under good circumstances.
I walked to the library and back with the kids and still nada. Sheesh!

How exciting! I hope labor gets going ASAP!

Good to know that your water broke first after pushing-breaking before. I'm assuming mine won't break until the end because it didn't before either, but maybe I shouldn't count on it!

DDDC, I hope your labor starts soon and everything goes well for you.

Today when I went to my MW there was a lady there waiting for labor to start and her water broke Thursday night. They were trying everything to get it going.

9 hours and still no change! I'm going to go to bed early and hope to be awake and in pain sometime during the night.
I'm glad I have infant prefolds laying around because the disposable pads I have for postpartum weren't cutting it.
