Jennifer McDonald of South Elgin was about 32 weeks pregnant when her water broke. "I had no idea what I was supposed to do. I started searching the baby book I relied on every day to track where my baby was in growth and development, but could find nothing about what to do if your water breaks two months early," she said. She rushed to the hospital where doctors tried to delay delivery, but baby Meagan was born two days later.
