What kind of labor did you have with your first?

My water broke and I didn't feel a thing. All I felt to the point when they started the pitocin was pressure. I was a 5 at that point. Some people don't feel anything.

It can all start suddenly and it could happen any time between now and two weeks from now. All it means is that when your labor does start, your body will have that much less work to do.

My son is the only labor i had start on its own. He was born 5 days before my due date. I felt fine also 3 cm then too. One day i felt like he was doing flips didnt feel like contractions & weren't painful. Turned out it was labor so it is possible for it to just happen when the baby is ready. Good luck i know i was more than ready that close to my due date lol.

with my first daughter I went into labor after getting membranes stripped..so i guess that might be why i feel like i need something to throw me into labor instead of my body just going on its own

i was induced with my daughter but ive been told lots of walking and or going up n downs steps will help bring on stronger n more constant contractions .. good luck !

she was doing flips last night and it really hurt but i was thinking it was because her head was putting pressure on my cervix when she was moving

When I had my daughter I was a week late and they scheduled me to be induced but I was scared to be induced sonthe night before I did a Zumba class and jumped around a bunch. Then I had sex. I went into labor naturally the next morning before my scheduled induction. Lol

I was still young & he was my first. I had an appt that day so when i went in they said i was in labor i was surprised. I was 4 cm when i got to the appt & they sent me to the mall. Lol

It was so fun I hadn't been able to work out really hard or let loose and jump around through the pregnancy and it felt good to go crazy. Lol. And everybody knows working out releases endorphins which increases sex drive so that meant I was actually horny like crazy for the first time in like a month and a half. It was a great night. Lol but i was sore when I arrived at l&d the next day.

I was dilated to a 3 and 75% effaced with both my pregnancies. I still had to be induced after being that way for 3 weeks.
