Did your water break.. if so, where!
Okay Mamas.. anyone who knows me on here, knows that ISH is about to get real.. aka.. my baby is coming any day now! My current paranoia is... my water breaking while like... RUNNING ERRANDS? DRIVING?
Did your water break on it's own? If so, where? If so.. what all went down? hahaha! That pun was totally intended!
Dumb question.. but does the whole LABOR thing start regardless if your water breaks? No doctors tell you the steps I feel like.. ie.. can my labor get fast and speedy without the water breaking.. or does it need to break before it all progresses more?
Thanks so much Mandi!!! Now can you do the pushing for meee? hahaha
In fact, my aunt's water didn't break until she was pushing! The water breaking can jump start labor because your body knows the baby can't stay in there for long with out their waterbed, but it doesn't have to happen in order for labor to start.
I think the biggest misconception is that it's a flood gate of goo. Though I'm sure that can happen, it's actually a trickle. Not a bucket. I've not once heard the ol, at the grocery store then flooded story and I've heard a LOT of stories. Lol
But... I understand your fear.
Two things... One... To make yourself feel better, carry a towel and change of clothes. A small towel in your purse ... Just to feel better.
Two. I don't think that you'll care that much when it happens. You think u will but I'm pretty sure your adrenaline and excitement and nerves will take away any embarrassment of it.
Also... Lets say you do have a woosh and flood gates happen in target... It's all going to be part of your story!!!! And it will be fun to tell after!!!!
We all have some thing that happened at that moment And it just makes it unique.
