Maternity Ward Musings : My Water Broke At 24 Weeks Pregnant

When your water breaks, that means it's time to have your baby right? Not necessarily. 

Sometimes a woman's water can break as early as the first trimester. Sadly, in that case there is nothing a doctor can do. Past the 22 week mark, you and your baby might be able to be saved by extreme medical measures. While you know that Western Medicine isn't exactly my cup of tea, I am grateful for it right now. 

My water broke while on vacation across the country at 24 weeks pregnant. In this video, I'm sharing exactly what happened and how my first six days on hospital bed rest have been. 

I can't thank you enough for your kind words, prayers and contributions. It is truly mind blowing how generous you all are. I don't have the right words to thank you, but I wish I could send you each a thank you note.  

One thing I forgot to mention in this video is that there is no known cause for this happening. There's no way of predicting it. It's not related to any of my health issues. They say it's basically just bad luck.
