Cristy and Joel Serrato were planning to deliver their child around her due date of May 23, but their newest son had other ideas.
On the morning of Thursday, May 7, Cristy started having contractions at 4 a.m. Since her water hadn’t broken, she thought they were just Braxton Hicks contractions and tried taking a shower to make herself more comfortable.
“I thought it was false labor,” she says.
At 7 a.m., her water broke. Cristy told her husband, Joel, that it was probably time to go to the hospital.
