So I got to be the person who went to get checked last night "just in case" and it ended up being nothing.
I REALLY thought my water broke. Really and truly. I had just used the bathroom and had a moderate size gush of fluid when I bent over to pick something up. Guess I shifted Nick's head just enough to pee a little more.
So off we went to L+D. Did I mention we had blizzard conditions last night???? We took Luke to the baby sitters in the snow then headed to the hospital. I got hooked up to the monitor. No contractions in the 30 mins I was on it. They swabbed me, checked for ferning under the microscope, and checked my cervix with the exciting verdict of "we think you just peed yourself" :rolleyes:
I felt pretty dumb. Fortunately we didn't call anyone to say "oh this is it!!!"... I wanted to be SURE just in case it was a false alarm. We left, picked Luke up around midnight, and came home.
I guess the only good news is I'm another 0.5 cm dilated and he is further engaged just since my appt yesterday. He's at -1 station. I'm breathing sooooooooooo much better! But my belly doesnt look any different to me. Fun times.
