This is not the post that I had intended for the day, but as we all know life doesn’t always go according to plan. Something bizzare happened today, and I’m not quite sure what it was. I barely slept last night with some pretty hearty period like cramps (think worst period cramps ever and then multiply it by 50). While I was in the car I felt a very painful pop feeling come from my cervix. This is obviously something I’ve never experienced, nor heard of so I have no idea what the heck it was. The weirdest part was, not only did I feel the pop sensation but it made an audible popping sound.
Within seconds of feeling the pop I had a warm sensation between my legs; not enough to consider it a gush of fluid but definitely noticeable wetness. Aside from that first gush of liquid I haven’t noticed any more leaking of fluid. At the same time the contractions that I had been feeling picked up drastically in duration and intensity. The contractions went from 3.5 minutes apart and 45 seconds long to 3 minutes apart and 1.5 minutes long. According to the good folks from Dr. Google, the majority of pregnant women who experienced the pop in their vagina went in and found out that their water had broken but the baby’s head was covering the opening preventing water from leaking. The only other thing I found was some women felt their pubic bone seperate as the baby engaged fully and described the feeling as if something popped.
I haven’t gone in to OB screening yet because quite frankly I don’t want to be sent home yet again. It’s really depressing when you go in thinking something is going on only to be told you aren’t far enough into it yet and to go home. Ronny of course is keeping a close eye on me and ready to go at a moments notice.
Have you had this feeling? If you’ve had it, what did it turn out to be? Have you heard of this?
