Did you ever just know? KC93 2 kids; North Carolina 57 posts

I'm 37 weeks with my second child, and for the past week or so I just feel it in my bones that baby is going to be here soon. Especially these past few days, my body has been REALLY achy, and my stomach feels so heavy and hard. Everytime I move, I'm in pain. I think I'm having contractions in my upper stomach, but they aren't that painful. My body hasn't let me sleep AT ALL, and I've been EXHAUSTED, specially since I'm dealing with an 18 month old as well ! I want baby to come whenever she is ready, I just hope It's not too soon. Maybe It's just my mind playing tricks on me?



What are some of your experiences when you first went into labor?

With my first I didn't have a clue til i went into labour.
With my second I thought i was going into labour loads of times, but once again labour took me completely by surprise when my water went in my sleep, saying that I KNEW that i would go into labour during the night which was strange.

I felt like that for ages and went overdue, that's just the way it is at the end of pregnancy.

Haha, yeah..you're 100% right. I know every pregnancy is different, and I kind of wish it wasn't because I never experienced this with my first. I just had a ton of pressure, and then contractions a day before my due date.

Same here. False labor sucks. The night my water broke I joked to SO saying my water was going to break in my sleep. I was right.
