|This is who was in my belly|
when my "water broke."
That is the noise I hear when ever I think back to my "water breaking". Except it isn't a little splash. The sound was more like someone had thrown a bucket of water against a wall. The horror the, "Oh nooo!", held, coming from my, future firefighter, husband, was absolutely priceless.
It was with my first pregnancy. We were getting in the car from a late night dinner with business friends. First of all, it was really late. That will be my first excuse. My second, is that it was our first time waiting for a baby to come. My third, is that we are just plain hilarious and silly together.

Can't wait to meet my third.
When he realized what had not happened, he started laughing hysterically, and began looking desperately for a napkin. He told me he thought the sound was my water breaking, which then of course made me loose it. Probably causing me to pee my pants... Ahh the joys of being pregnant.
That story is still one of my favorite and funniest that has happened to me during pregnancy. All I have to do is remember that splash, my husband screaming out, and I can't help but laugh out loud. I love having this story in the back of my mind to go to whenever I need a laugh.
My water actually never broke. I was induced with both previous labors, a week after I was due. This time my hospital will let me go up to two weeks, so maybe I won't have to be induced. Never the less, I heard that hardly any one's water actually breaks. Now my question is, why? Is it because the hospitals induce, trying to protect them selves, after 1 week late? Or does it just not happen? What happened before hospitals? Babies just stayed in there until they grew so big it had to break, resulting in babies or mommies being sick from bad amniotic fluid? Anybody know?
Did any of your water break? How many people do you know who actually had there water break? Any hilarious stories you would like to share? Let's add some laughter to the mostly awkward end to pregnancies! As always, thanks for reading, and Happy Mother's Day! XOXO
