Arianna Fiona arrived at 9:46 pm on 11-9-11. She was 7 lbs 9 ozs and 20 in long.

I worked all day Wednesday and kept having to pee every 30 minutes. I thought in the back of my head that i might be leaking amniotic fluid, but then thought I was just being paranoid. Towards 5 pm the end of my day I had a few painful contractions, so I quickly finished my notes and headed home. Had a few more painful contractions, but thought I would lay down and they would probably stop. When I got home I told DH I probably needed to go to L&D to be checked. Called OB who said come in to L&D. DH feed DS dinner while I headed to the hospitall around 6:30. They determined I had indeed ruptured and was about 3 cm. Called DH and my aunt to come take care of DS. They moved me from triage to labor room at 7:30 and Ii was at 5 cm. Got the
epidural around 8 as DH was getting to the hospital. Arianna arrived by 9:46 after only a few pushes. Ob barely had gloves on
and no time to break the bed down.
There were some concerns with HR so they had me on oxygen and iv fluids throughout labor. I was group B positive and they only got in 1 round of antibiotics since labor progressed so quickly. Her labs yesterday and today are a bit concerning for infection so she may have to go to the NICU for antibiotics.

I was leaking fluid all day, just did not realize it till the end of my day. I thought there was no way my water could have broken before labor again as this is how my first went also. Guess I was wrong.
