  • Not at all. The pain gradually increased. It wasn't a sudden "OMG my water broke and the baby's coming!" I was uncomfortable all day. Then that night, I was trying to get comfy for bed but just couldn't. It got worse and worse. I didn't deliver til the night after.

  • No the tv shows are so overdramatized!! My contractions started while I was walking the mall at 7pm. I didn't go to the hospital until 10am the next day.

  • I guess I was asleep when I started having contractions. I woke up at 6am when my fiance got home and they were about 7 minutes apart.
