Thought I had 4 weeks left

Had a hard time sleeping early Saturday morning (nothing new, haven't slept much in the past couple of months).  I get up to use the bathroom and my water broke!  So my original due date of 5/24 was pushed right on up to 4/27  :-)


At 2:41 PM I gave birth to a healthy baby boy weighing 6lbs 4 oz and 18 1/2 inches long.  Thankfully even though he was born at 36 weeks he is doing well and I am now a proud mommy to two beautiful children.  It's been wonderful reading and sharing with the other mommies in the May expecting club.  I wish you all happy, safe, and healthy deliveries!

Congratulations! That's awesome and unexpected! I'm 38 weeks tomorrow, and am hoping my water randomly breaks or that I at least randomly go into labor soon. At my appointment this past Wednesday I was 2cm and 70% effaced! I was feeling so crummy that day, being just tired with constant dull lower back/lower abdomen cramps like before you start your period. I'm kind of feeling that way again today, so maybe my cervix is doing some more work!
