Warning: This may be too much information for some people!
Georgia's birth story began on Friday, January 6, 2006 at about 11:00 p.m. We were smack dab in the middle* of watching the movie, Wedding Crashers. (Of course it was past my usual bedtime at this stage of pregnancy, but when Neil asked if I wanted to watch a movie, I thought, sure, I can stay up a little later tonight because I'll be able to sleep in tomorrow. Ha!)
I asked Neil to pause the movie because I had to pee. I went to the bathroom, used the toilet, and when I stood up, my water broke. I called Neil to the bathroom. He didn't believe me at first! Helloooo! I know the difference between peeing and leaking amniotic fluid! He just thought it was too early. Well, it took me by surprise too, but this was unmistakable. I asked him to get me a Pull-up (diaper) because from past experience I knew that maxi pads would be completely useless.
Within a couple of minutes, Neil had called his cousin Darren to come to our house, and I had dressed for the hospital. He then called Glenys to meet us at the hospital, and our parents to let them know what was happening. While Darren was en route, we gathered up the last few items for my hospital bag. Thank goodness I had pinned a list to my bag because my adreneline was way up and I couldn't think straight. Darren arrived within 20 minutes and we were outta here soon after.
