Exclamation Water broke, at the hospital!

Hey ladies! Water broke this morning but it was trickling and I wasn't positive, but I felt crampy. Went to work and sure enough, I was still leaking and while sitting down in front of the room, I could feel more coming out. Left work at that point with my BFF/godmother driving.

Because my water broke and I wasn't in active labor, they recommended I go for the pitocin, and that an epidural would probably be in my future as well. Not my original plan, but it is what it is at this point.

Baby will probably be here tonight!

Re: Water broke, at the hospital!

congratulations - keep us updated!

my water broke and we used a breast pump to avoid pitocin, so if you haven't already gotten all those things, send your DH home or ask them if you can borrow a hospital grade one!

Kinda figured it wouldn't be long before things picked up for you!

FWIW, I had a pitocin induction with DS1 and didn't get an epidural at all - not saying you shouldn't, but just saying that it is possible!

Good luck! I can't wait for your baby update!!
