McCall’s water broke at her church building after a youth activity she was helping with on Wednesday, January 16th around 8:45pm. She thought she was peeing her pants in the foyer and hurried to the bathroom where she realized it wasn’t just the inability to control her bladder. Collin pulled the car up and she ran to the car! She sat on the toilet at home while Collin grabbed everything they needed for the hospital. She rode to the hospital with a towel between her legs. McCall & Collin arrived at the hospital about 9:30pm.

McCall got her epidural early in hopes she could sleep a little bit through the night. Although she didn’t sleep, she was grateful for her epidural which helped her through her labor.
