Question of the Day #945

Last night around 1:30 AM, my cousin's water broke. She and her husband got up, took their toddler to a friend's and sped to the hospital. During the ride, she felt the baby coming out.

When they reached the hospital, the baby's legs were out. Normally they do a C-section on breech babies, but this time, the baby was naturally born breech.

The baby was born within an hour of the water breaking.

I'm predicting that girl is going to be something special. Anyone who is in that much of a rush to start her life must have an extraordinary life to lead.

But can you imagine the panic her mother felt? Have you or someone you know experienced a crazy birth?



  1. I was born in 35minutes. I think that might explain some things about me.

  2. Congrats to the MOM!! Glad everyone came out alright.

  3. Holy crap - that's amazing!! Welcome to your cousin's fabulous new baby! :-)

    I don't know anyone that has given or had a crazy birth, which makes me a little nervous that I might be the one that it happens to! Yikes!

  4. My middle came out at exactly 11:59 p.m. No kidding.

  5. Both of my girls were born within about an hour of the water breaking. With my second, I called the doctor and told him we were heading right to the hospital. He insisted that we had time, and I said OH NO WE DO NOT! The damn doctor was almost late for the birth!
