My water just broke! -- Updated: Bree Barbara

My water broke at 1AM. Just got out of the shower and puttering around the house while waiting for parents to get here and watch DD when we go to the hospital.

It's going to be soon! I'm so glad the waiting is over!

------------

Update:

To all those wishing me a fast delivery, um, thanks? Wink

Labor itself was crazy fast and insanely hard. The water breaking at 1AM woke me up. I hadn't been feeling any ctrx except BH, and was 0 cm at my appt on Thursday. We called L&D and they made it sound like there was no rush to come in, so I labored at home until ctrx were 5 mins apart for an hour. But they were getting LONG, 4 mins long with only a min before the next would start. So I told DH "We're leaving NOW." By the time we got in the car, ctrx were 3 mins apart with only a 30 second break. We got to the hospital at 4:30. I was 4 cm. Transition hit at 5 AM. I got a single dose of happy injection at about 5:30. It took the edge off the constant pain for about 15 mins. I was 10 cm and pushing at 6:30. The nurses said I was laboring like a 4th time mom, not a lady with one prior scheduled c-sec. First few pushing ctrx were productive, then things stalled. There was a scare where the baby stepped on the umbilical and cut her heartrate precipitously. They rushed me into the OR and had me try all sorts of positions to move her foot. She stabilized then, thank goodness. After a total of 2 hours pushing with no more progress and almost constant pain, I asked for an epi. The on-duty Dr wanted to go straight to c-sec because of my prior history. I was disappointed, but agreed because it was the fastest way to end things.

I have to think God was guiding our instincts to go forward with surgery, because we totally made the right call. I didn't find out until they were stitching me together that the first thing they saw when they opened me up was my uterus rupturing along DD's old scar. They were professional and calm by not mentioning the rupture aloud until after the baby was out, so I wouldn't freak.

But baby Bree and I are safe, which is the important thing. Recovery has been MUCH easier this time so far (in spite of everything), making it more fun to bond with her. Pic to come later. I wish all the moms who are still waiting safe deliveries!
