How did you feel? Did you know labor was coming, or did it hit you out of no where?

My first I was induced. But with my DS, I had just woken up. I felt a little crampy, but I ignored it and started dinner. It was wings in the crockpot, took 8 hours to cook. It was something new we wanted to try. I finished that sat on the couch and felt some more cramps, but nothing to bad. I felt like I had to pee and when I got up and into the hallway my water broke. It was out of no where and then I had a few contractions on the way to the hospital, but they stopped. I wasn't contracting or dilating on my own, so they gave me pitocin. 4 hours later baby was born.

My first kid took forever but, my second one was so different. It was 1 am I just couldn't sleep was on the computer chatting with sister in law and I decided to get off because my back was hurting. I lay down and like always the baby shifts onto the side I'm laying on. Very uncomfortable, thinking he would move soon I wait and wait. Try falling asleep but, I just couldn't. He was still on my left side. 330 am I realize the pain in my left side only is coming and going like contractions.



I wait until 4 to wake the hubby. Pain is on both sides now and constant contractions over and over. I shower and get ready to go to the hospital in horrible pain. We get to ER at 515 am answering their stupid check in questions. Get to my room 15 mins later and the nurse wants me to pee in a cup.. Ugh I said I really have to push! Since I was in the car! They check me sure enough I'm fully dilated. Had baby at 556 am :)

He was seen. :) It was the hospital L&D joke of the week that we both were in labor at the same time. Our DD was the "kidney stone baby". Haha! He lucky was discharged before she was born (considering she took her sweet time after my water broke) and he laid in the guest bed most of the time on medication. We both were in pain. It was kind of funny looking back. But he got up and helped me through it. Bless him!

I was fairly certain he was going to stay in there forever lol. I hadn't had any braxton hicks, no contractions or anything. Then the morning of his DD I woke up around 5am bleeding. I had just had a dilation check the day before so I figured it was from that. Around 9am I started having tiny gushes of fluid. It wasn't constant and was just a tiny bit of fluid at a time but after 3 hours I called L&D. They said it was probably just discharge but get checked just in case. After sitting in the hospital for 2 hours the dr finally came in and checked me and sure enough it was my water leaking. I was only having mild contractions (I couldn't feel them at all) so they put, new, on pitocin for about 8 hours. I only dilated to barely 3cm so I ended up with a csection the next morning.
