Although I was scheduled for a January 9th due date, my daughter wouldn't make her grand entrance until a week later. On the 15th, I was induced and being that if was my first time going through this I had a LOT of questions. The first nurse on duty was very sweet! She listened to my questions and answered them calmly and very informatively. One of my questions being "How does it feel when my water break?" Her answer "Well, It'll feel like a rubber-band snapped. It wont hurt at all, but the following contractions will be uncomfortable." She chatted with me for a few more seconds and left the room. 5 Seconds later, I paged her back in due to my water breaking. She wasn't upset. She wasn't annoyed. She was happy for me.
