My Waters Broke!!!

Yep, they broke at about 12:15am this morning. Still no contractions though :( If they don't start soon I will have to be induced which I really don't want. I want to go as natural as possible.

I have been walking all day, bouncing on my ball and having warm baths to try and bring on the contractions, but there has been no change. It is driving me crazy! I just want to get things underway. I am so close to meeting my little girl, but now it seems like we have taken a step back and everything is going so slow. I have been getting light little pains and tightening but nothing major yet.

I had to go to the Hospital last night for them to check me and bubs out and make sure it was definitely my waters that broke (which it was). Bubs is doing well and still moving lots which is really good. Now I am back at home just playing the waiting game and praying that the contractions start really soon.

How exciting, you get to meet your baby soon! Good luck with your bouncing and walking, hopefully you will get the birth you want.

Oh my goodness! I'm sending positive energy and good thoughts your way!!! I hope your baby comes along soon and in the way you want, but most of all HEALTHY!

I have to admit I'm a bit jealous! I want to meet my baby girl, and being only 3 days from my due date, I'm still not having any contractions or anything! Another friend of mine, who was due 3 days after me, has already had her baby too! You guys are teasing me!

Please post pics and a birth story as soon as you feel able to (or at least an update!)!

Sooo exciting! Good idea to let nature take its course if you can. She'll make her entrance when she's good and ready, I guess. Can hardly wait to meet her!! :):)
