My water broke and I didn't know it

It was almost 15 hours between when my water broke and contractions started and then it was another 30 hours from there. Because of how things started I had to be monitored and on pitosin. I made it through with only IV pain meds, just to help me get some sleep. An epidural frightened me more than the pain. My husband was wonderful through the whole things.

I had my first child in April 2013, just before our one year anniversary. Riley has been an absolute joy and I love every minute of being mom. But I am the first among my friends to have a child, so there isn't always an easy place to go for advice.
