All day on Sunday December 13th I felt vaguely crampy & tired. I stayed busy with kids’ holiday activities, but kept an eye on my crampiness. After going to bed on the late side, should have gone to bed early like the night before, I woke up at 2 AM when my water broke. I admit I was surprised. I was sure I was just having wishful thinking pre-labor stuff, not the real deal. After calling the midwife we loaded stuff in the car, got the kids up & loaded them in the car too & headed to Boulder. First stop, my sister’s house to get the kids settled in.
