There are so many moments in my seemingly never-ending pregnancy I would love to forget. The nausea and the morning sickness and the constipation and the complications that landed me in the hospital numerous times; they can all be erased from my brain for all I care. One moment I don't ever want to forget, though, is the moment my water broke. It was incredible and exciting and a million things were racing through my mind, including what my baby was thinking. I'd like to think there are things your baby is thinking when your water's breaking; things that make the impending labor and delivery all the more real; things that prove your baby is just as excite dot meet you as you are to meet them.
Then again, there's obviously no way of knowing what in the hell your baby is thinking at any point in their baby-life. While it would be helpful, until you learn their cries, their mannerisms and until they're able to articulate their wants and needs with verbal speech, you're on your own, parents. The best you can do is pay attention, guess and — especially when your kid is still cookin' in your stomach — let your imagination run wild.
I know what was was going through my mind when my water broke (the majority of which I can't write about, because publishing an endless list of obscenities isn't really the name of my writing game). Now that my son is two-years-old and the days of pregnancy, labor and delivery are behind me, from time to time I like to think back, reminisce and wonder what those experiences were like for my baby. Here's my best guess as to what my kid was thinking when my water was breaking all over my living room floor because, well, there's no way I was the only person excited.
