Around 2:30 am, I woke up to use the restroom. After I laid back down, I felt a small leak. I thought that was weird and wondered if I just maybe peed my pants a little? I hadn't had any problems with it all pregnancy, but who knows what your body is doing. I tried to back to sleep, but it kept happening, so I would just go to the bathroom each time, because I figured surely I must just be peeing my pants!
From about 2:30 am to 6:30 am I had about 4 more random gushes. When Matt woke up around 3:30 to get ready for work, I told him either my water broke or I'm peeing myself. I figured if it was actually my water breaking (I was mega in denial) that I had some time. I hadn't started contracting at all, so I figured we would be ok. So, he went ahead in for PT. They had a PT test scheduled for that morning that I didn't want him to miss!
At about 6:30, Matt came home from PT and went ahead and let his sgt know we
were going to the hospital. I slept until about 830 and then took a shower and started
getting ready. I was still not having any contractions at this point. We got Sophia up, I
showered, we packed bags and brought up some stuff from the basement we
might need. I still wasn't convinced I was in labor because I was only 36 weeks and 3 days along.
I called my OB and talked to the nurse. She advised me to go ahead and head to the hospital so that they could check to see if I had ruptured or not. So, around 1030 am we got to the hospital and got checked in at triage.
Around 10, I started feeling pressure and felt like I needed to poop. Because
my epidural with Sophia was so wonky, I never had that feeling. So when
I told the nurse, she checked me and realized I was ready to push soon!
She called my dr and they started prepping the room and around 10:30 I started pushing. I pushed maybe 6-7 times and she here at 10:57 pm! So much quicker than the first time around!
