I remember the day that I went into labor with my daughter, we were out celebrating my mother’s birthday and just as I was getting ready to crawl into bed. I heard a pop and knew instantly that my water had broke. Of course, I should have known better but I immediately ran to the bathroom and sat on the toilet. I know, I know, that I probably shouldn’t have sat on the toilet since I didn’t know how far into labor that I was. However, my immediate reaction to the situation was to try and contain the mess so that I didn’t have to worry about cleaning up amniotic fluid after I got home from the hospital.
