Lil Community: The Culmination of a Wonderful Nine Months

A person's story starts before he or she is born. Heritage, conception, and pregnancy aside, there's an amazing tale to be told of how each baby enters the world. Quackii submitted her birth story in the LilSugar Community. Here's an excerpt.

My first and only pregnancy was easy (as I would say). Yes, I had my nights where they were frustrating, had tremendous heartburn, and for that I had "Tums" and "saltine crackers" the whole night, they worked wonders for me! When my day came, it was actually a pretty funny story. It was 6 am, everyone was still asleep, and I woke up and felt myself wet. I thought I had peed and I was so embarrassed, I didn't tell anyone. I went straight to the shower, and when I got out I went straight to bed again, passed out until 9am, and when I woke up, I was wet again. So this time I woke up my husband and I said "Babe, I think its time." He sped out of the bed like nobody's business, checked my pants and said "this isn't pee, lets go!" (Still no pain) We were calm, yet excited. We were on the road when we passed McDonald's, and we both stared at each other, "mmmm!" So yeah, we stopped for some breakfast through the drive thru! Then we arrived at the hospital still feeling good. We were in the waiting area when I told my husband maybe it's a false alarm, let's go home. He said no let's just wait and see what they tell you . . . and yes, for sure, I was 1cm already!
