  1. When I was about to deliver my last child. The father had to run home and take the baby sitter home being his mother arrived to watch our son. When he was heading back to the hospital he stopped to get something to eat at Wendy's. Took it to the hospital and ate it in the parking lot. Me during this time was rocking and I thought my water Burke. It was not water it was blood. The doc came in and seen the bag was detaching and coming out but not popped so she popped it and it threw me not full labor. I was in so much pain that the doc wanted an epidermal. I said heck no she denied me any pain Ned's so I apologized and told her. Let I needed to push she said your crazy your only 2 and I told her no check please' In a matter of 15 minutes I went from 2-9 then the tech came for the epidermal and I had t push. Still no hubby. I start screaming cause it was time. 20 minutes had past no hubby ( he is eating it he parking lot) as the tech cam in did the start of the epidermal I had to push and the doc was freaking out. 25 minutes. No husband. Then I started to push. Baby was crowning. The dad heard me scream and ran into see his first daughter be born by seconds! The tech finished the test then gave me the epidermal after I had my daughter because it happens so fast. She was 37 weeks and weighed 7lbs 6 oz born on st. Patrick's day 2012 in payson Arizona.

  2. When my wife went into labor on a Friday night we drove to the hospital, parked in an empty parking lot right in front of the doors and went into an empty labor ward where we spent the night after her labor stopped and went home the next morning.

    The following Friday night she went into labor again. We drove to the hospital, parked in an empty parking lot right in front of the doors and went into an empty labor ward where we spent the night after her labor stopped and went home the next morning.

    When we were leaving the doctor told us she'd be on duty the next Friday night as well and she'd see us then.

    So on Wednesday night I'm laying in bed looking at my wife who is obviously having labor pains and then freaked out when I realized they were 2 minutes apart. I called my mother-in-law to watch the two older kids, went downstairs to scrape ice off the windshield on my car since we were getting freezing rain and off we went.

    The roads were horrible as you might imagine and I thought we we'd never get there on time. When we got to the hospital there wasn't a parking space available anywhere close to the hospital so I dropped my wife off at the double doors and watched as she ran down the hallway getting undressed. I found an open parking garage with an empty space on the fifth floor and started running toward the hospital slipping and sliding the whole two blocks.

    When Silke had gotten to the labor ward it was a full house plus, but she was light years ahead of the other women so they moved a couple out of a room and made way for my wife.

    When I entered the room they were already setting things up for delivery, which involved a three legged chair for Silke and a big rubber ball behind it for me to sit on and as soon as I sit down behind her she made two fists, pushed them into my hands for support and pushed once and we had a pretty new daughter.

    I don't think we could have cut it any closer than that!

  3. My daughter use to play a game I called made you look. I would be be laying down on my back and you could see her moving around in my stomach. You could actually see her moving! It was both neat and freaky.

    I was in the room with my parents and sister one day when she was doing it. Everytime someone would look over, my daughter would stop. They'd go back to watching tv she did it again.

    It was like she was playing her own version of freeze tag.

  4. When I went in to see my doctor at 39w5d he assured me that I'd be going over-due with my first child so he would see me after Christmas. It was 12-20-2007. I was devastated. I called my family 500 miles away and told them to come for Christmas, but save days off for when he finally arrived.

    I mulled around for the next day, so sad that I'd be pregnant forever. Went to bed not happy that the next day was my due date and I had no hopes of delivery anytime soon.

    At around 6:45 on the morning of my due date I woke up needing to pee. I thought I was going to get up, and go to the bathroom then back to sleep. Ha!When I sat up in bed, my water broke! I was in shock as I knew nobody who had their water broken before they knew they were in labor. The following conversation ensued:

    Me: "uh oh"
    Husband: "What's wrong?"
    Me: "well, either my water just broke or I just peed myself and couldn't stop."
    Husband: "Better be the first one or I'm rubbing your nose in it."

    It was my waters.

  5. My friend had extreme stomach pains and went to the ER on Thanksgiving 2011. Having taken a pregnancy test a few weeks prior she told them she was pretty sure she wasn't pregnant, they did a blood test anyway. Well, before they got the results she had to go to the bathroom. She called out to her fiance's mom and said "Why am I peeing if I'm not peeing?" Well, you guessed it, her water broke. Well I was down home with my family and I got a text that morning that said we have someone we'd like to introduce you to. Thinking they had an ultrasound pic and she had just waited to tell everyone until that day, I responded with "oooook?". Next text I get is a pic with a name, DOB, TOB, weight and length. Needless to say that was, and will be, a very memorable Thanksgiving. My Goddaughter was preemie, but is doing fine now 🙂

  6. When I was 9 months along my hubby foolishly made a comment about renting a crane to get me out of the car… yeah I was huge and having a hard time doing anything, but seriously?! Rent a crane?! Oh, he will never forget that he opened his mouth and inserted his foot. I was not amused.

  7. can't think of any from my pregnancy, but when my then 4 year old stepson's mom was pregnant with her second kid he was so excited. He kept saying "My baby sister's in there." Whenever we asked him "What if it's a boy? What if you have a little brother" He'd reply with "I already HAVE a brother, my sister's in there!"

    (ps- it turned out to be a boy!)

  8. My first pregnancy was perfect. My water broke on it's own and I was able to deliver with having a c-section. My second pregnancy wasn't too bad. The doctor decided to induce me a week before my due date. The day before I was scheduled to be induced, I had asked my husband if we could go look for a new refrigerator. We pull into Sears and as I get out of the truck and start walking toward the store, my water broke. Right there in the parking lot. I wasn't in any pain and I just started laughing. Of course my husband was wondering why I stopped walking and was laughing so hard and all I had to do was turn around so he could see my wet pants! Of course he asked if I peed my pants! Needless to say, we didn't get a new refrigerator that day but we did have a beautiful baby girl the next morning!
