  • Mostly when your "water breaks" its your body saying any hour you are going to have this baby.I would go to the hospital if I was you.Its not worth the guessing!!!

  • When I was in labor I got a fever. But it was after I had started pushing. They ended up giving me a csection right away because my son and I both had a fever. Nothing was wrong with either of us after he was delivered. Def go to the hospital and see. it never hurts to just check and be sure nothing is wrong!
