You're birth story. I woke up feeling like I wet the bed. I lied there and more came. I went to the bathroom and got moving around. I felt more come. I thought, maybe my water broke? But I wasn't sure. I googled it, waited, and paid attention to the liquid coming out until I was pretty sure it was my water. Your dad was at work. I called the hospital and let them know, they said I should get in. So I called our neighbors the Drydens and asked if Sam and Nora could go play at their house I was pretty dang positive my water had broke. This was the first time my water broke first.
After I dropped up Sam and Nora I called your dad on my way to the hospital. I told him the contractions weren't too bad so not to rush, but he rushed anyways. I got checked in. I explained my water had broke and my deliveries usually go fast. They said the doctor would be right in.
Your dad showed up shortly after I got checked in. Some of the contractions started to get painful, but I only wanted a little medicine so held off getting and epidural. Big mistake.
