Nope, nothing unusual until the contractions hit and I thought I was dying….that pain was beyond anything I even thought possible….NEVER again for me!

MrsDusso :  I went into labour at 36 weeks so I wasn’t expecting it to happen that day. I woke up with an urge to get things done.

I realized it was for real and not just BH while I was having a new cellphone contract set up!

MrsDusso :  With my first pregnancy I didn’t, though that day I had a ton of motivation and got soooo much stuff done. I literally walked over 5 miles in my own home cleaning and putting all our Christmas decor away.

With my second I woke up and just knew. Hung out at home for 2-3 hours then the contractions started and 4 hours later Dear Daughter was here 🙂

I didn’t feel any different but I did take a 2 hour nap which was a bit unusual (just because I usually didn’t have time for that long a nap!).  Woke up, went to get some food from the kitchen and my water broke!  I was 40wk3d

The day before I was a little sick to my stomach and I took a big nap which is not like me, not even pregnant. Then at dinner I could hardly eat a thing and was crampy. I went for a long walk when we got home and the cramps got worse but as soon as I stopped walking they stopped. I fell asleep and woke up at 6 am with severe cramps. I ran to go pee and lost my plug/had a ton of bleeding in the toilet. I knew I was in labor. The contactrions kept coming. I tried to do my make up so I’d be one of those pretty Mom’s in labor but the contactions were too bad and my water broke lol. I went to the hospital way too soon and was in labor for 15 hrs. I was 38 weeks and that was my second child. I was induced with my 1st.

Nope, felt totally normal!  Was sitting on the couch eating chips and watching TV and then felt a little something wet, so went into the bathroom and suddenly my water broke.  No cramps or anything at first either, but those came shortly thereafter.  Called the doctor and they told me to come in right away — contractions started to really hit in the car and my baby was born very quickly after we got there!

I felt extremely tired. I was on bedrest and I felt weird all day long. My husband even commented that I seemed off my game. I went into labor that night at about 9:30.

I didn’t feel any different.. I had braxton hicks for a while so I was used to those, but looking back I think some of them that day may have been actual contractions because they were stronger, but I didn’t think anything of it. I was scheduled to be induced the following day, but my water broke on its own at 5pm.

I didn’t feel different at all. I was overdue by two days. Went and watched a movie at about 7pm and at the end of the movie i started to have light contractions, drove myself to Burger King because i was hungry. I ate and then went home, had a bath and the contractions became intense. Went to the hospital at about 8.30am and was 9cm dilated and delivered at 10.10am (left it a little late i guess).

I had no idea. I was 2 days past my due date and was scheduled to be induced the next morning. I figured if it hadnt happened by my due date that I would just get induced. She had other plans! I got out of bed that morning, took 2 steps, and my water broke.

I was 2 weeks overdue and  enormous. I was wakened about 2:00 am Sunday morning by my water breaking and we went right to the hospital. 

I hadn’t felt any different that night other than knowing that something would be happening sooner or later. I never went into labor.

After being induced and making no progress, my baby was born Monday morning at 8:00 am by C section.
