  • When i woke up I sat up in bed and my water broke, that was with my first one. With my second i had just finished eating dinner and bent over to pick up some toys and my water broke.

  • I was trying to sleep. I kept waking up and going to the bathroom because I thought I had diarrhea( it was just cramps though that felt like it) and my Fiance yelled at me for keep getting up. If I had to be awake at 4 to time contractions damn straight he was gonna be up too! lol

  • My first my plug came out and contractions started that night, my second was a planned section before my due date decreasing labor - very tough first one, my third baby I was at the hospital getting a workup for a scheduled section the next mornng and the ultrasound tech told me I was having contractions and could very well have baby before the next morning. Number 3 did wait for section.
    My husband's had a few kidneystones since then and I've told him kidneystones in guys are there labor pain, get ready to rumble!!!!!

  • It was around midnight-ish, and my Fiance had just gotten home awhile ago from helpin out a buddy, and funny thing, we were actually gettin in the mood to have sex, lol, and I felt the mild contractions, so we stopped (we weren't actually having sex yet, lol), and I sat up, and felt this POP POP on my tummy...thought that was kinda weird, so we went into the bathroom, and the contractions kept coming, so we took a shower while timing contractions, they were only 4-6 mins apart. After the shower I went potty, and while I was still sitting there my water started to leak out...it didn't GUSH, just leaked, lol, which was just annoying, because I had to like change my undies 80 times before we left for the hospital...lol....which was like 45 mins after it started to leak, lol

  • I was induced the first time but the second time I was watching Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay on my laptop. I wasn't even sure I was in labor since I'd been in pain since about 4 in the afternoon. It was around 1 am when I called the doctor.
