  • I was having contractions all day and didn't realize it, until I started bleeding. I felt like such a dope, when I got to the hospital I was 6 cm dilated.

  • I was in labor 4 the whole day and didn't realize until 8 or 9pm my water hadn't broken yet but I had really strong contractions throughout the day and I ignored it cuz I thought it was just more fake contractions and (I also have a high pain tolerance), it wasn't until we had gone out 2 dinner @ chili's I started leaking, it was then that realized I might actually be in labor, so we went 2 the hospital and I was 6cm dialated, my water still hadn't broken I felt like an idiot because I had no idea I was in labor the whole day until the moment they told me how much I was dialated

  • My contractions woke me up around 6 am. I must have been having them sporadically in my sleep, because by the time I woke up they were very strong and close together. lol.

    Good luck!
