THE BIG SCARE!!!!!
Well Friday morning at approximately 12:30 in the AM. Cassie got up to use the "facility" after returning to her most comfortable bed she realized that something was different and that the wetness now flowing was not supposed to be there. You guessed it her water broke at 30 weeks and 5 days! She then proceeded to disturb my slumber and awkward dreams with panic and mayhem. Needless to say a what should have been a twenty minute drive to the hospital turned into a flying ten!! long story short she is now looking at spending a minimum of a week to a maximum of three weeks on bed rest in labor and delivery with little to no amniotic fluid to keep Riley afloat. But do not fret she and the babies are doing well with minimal contractions and a dilation of 3 cm. Two things have been learned: 1. Women really do scream when they are having babies, and 2. amniotic fluid is really just baby pee!!!
