The Scoop On Poop
My first son was 2 years old and Grandma and I (39weeks 6 days)took him to 'THE SCOOP ON POOP' exhibit at the exploration park. It had been a good few days and Grandma was trying to help me stay busy. Best part is I have a picture of my son in one of the head shot murals and the picture is a person going potty in an out house...
I was starting to get tired and my son a bit cranky, so I had grandma take us home. We both laid down for naps... Towards the end of my nap my husband texted me that he was on his way home from work. I rolled over and laid there for a minute, suddenly I had to PEE.
Fortunately my son was still sleeping and I had my phone handy. I sat down on the potty thinking nothing of it and went. Stood up after I was done, but still had to go. NOW this would be a normal feeling for a pregnant women in her last days, but I stood up again and as I took a few steps to get a new pair of underwear (prego tinkle) I rushed back to the toilet and made it JUST as my water broke.
I called my mom to come watch my son and husband to step on the gas a bit while I sat on the toilet planing my next move. Go figure NO towels in the bathroom, I had to choose today to do the wash. I need yet another pair of underwear and my pants. Of course I dared to try to get them myself, but ended up staying on the pot till someone showed up (only about 5 minute or so).
So 3:42 pm my water broke, 3:50 daddy and grandma showed up at the house. I think we checked into the HP about 5pm. I didn't actually start labor till about 2am the next morning, and little brother was born 8:04am Jan 9th, on his due date.
