♥ Don't take a hot bath while you're home alone. You might end up sitting there for a few hours waiting for help to get out.

♥ You will pee your pants and think your water broke. It's OK to go to L&D anyway. No one will laugh at you (well no medical professionals anyway).
I'm sorry that happened to you Rachel... I can just imagine and it's hilarious.

- Try sleeping sitting up. Wedge pillows around you on the couch. It might work for a few minutes.

- Run cold water over your wrists when you are having hot flashes.

- Keep an extra change of clothes in the vehicle. You may start leaking from above or below.

- Keep pads in the vehicle, general rule of thumb is that if a pad is filled in an hour, it may be a waters leak. Of course, call your OB/midwife, but they may want you to wear one and see how long it takes to fill up, which can be a pain in the butt if you have none.

- Laugh often, but not too hard. No one wants to smell like pee.
