How did you know for sure you were in labor? Did your water break? Did you just have contractions?
Share your story ladies :)

I hated hearing, "You'll just know" but you do.



I just started having contractions. Each one got closer in time and more intense.

My water broke at 5:30am all over my bed after I finally got into the most comfortable position. All I could remember thinking is this is way too early and I felt like an idiot for all my trips to the L&D thinking my water broke for when it broke it broke there was a huge gush and then it felt like I was peeing myself and couldn't stop. By the time I got to the hospital it looked like I sat in a puddle.

I woke up, went pee, and when I stood up off the toilet, my water broke.

I woke up in the middle of the night with what I thought was stomach cramps because I needed to poop but after the third contraction I knew it was labor. They started out at 3 minutes apart. It could have easily been mistaken for diarrhea since I couldn't stay of the toilet but my instincts told me differently.

It's crazy how a lo of women just know. I was having contractions for a week and I never thought I was in active labor I just though it was the uncomfortable end of pregnancy
