I had always wondered if the stories about bouncing around with your little one’s whilst pregnant were true or if they were a little bit on the over exaggerated scale until it was a week before my due date with my second little blessing. My daughter loved to jump on the trampoline and being three it was not an extreme sport by any means more like gentle little hops. so when she begged me to hop on with her the week before number two was due I thought nothing of it. I had been to my OB/GYN the day before and he had told be my baby was head down ready to go and all was looking good so I thought five minutes of gentle jumping would be no big deal, but at 5am the following morning my waters broke. I thought nothing of it at first, called the hospital and waited for my sister in law to arrive to watch our daughter. By this stage I had realized that I wasn’t really getting contractions just the tiniest little crampy pains. When I got to the hospital the midwife checked and said my waters had broken by since I wasn’t really contracting she was going to send me home. Luckily for me my OB/GYN was at the hospital and came in to check on me, when he examined me he discovered my baby had turned and my waters had broken because he had poked his foot out first so off to theater for me. The doctor said to me what did you do he was in a perfect postion just two days before and I never confessed.
