Here we go!

At about 8:00, I was cooking dinner and had to wipe a drip off the floor. Then all of a sudden, *gush* my water broke! I've been having mild contractions all day (oh, my, now I am having one that feels all sorts of different), but not with any pattern of force behind them, so I thought it was just more BH. So, I took a shower and will eat a little dinner, then head off to the hospital. The fluid was possibly greenish at first, but then tapered off to clear and then slightly pink-tinged. The greenish has them concerned, so the nurses want to see exactly what's going on (I called).

Looks like we're going to have a baby!

Go over to the hospital asap.
Greenish means that there is meconium (the faeces the baby produces inside the belly) in the amniotic fluid, and that is NOT good.
Also pinkish is not the best of news.
Go over there and get checked.
Hope everything is all right and you just thought you saw green.
