  • With my first pregnancy, I walked everywhere and started doing housework during the last weeks. The day of the labor was Christmas but I didn't do anything special to bring it on other than cry to my cousin on the phone that this baby will never come out! hehe I went to bed that night as I somehow knew it was the early slow labor. The next day in the afternoon, the contractions came on stronger and I was ready to go that night. (My daughter was born a week before due date).

    My second pregnancy...oh man! I tried everything..walking, moving stuff around the house, eating spicy foods, etc. Nothing worked and I was already a day overdue!!! I went to see my doctor and she stripped my membranes that afternoon. I took a nap and 6 hours later, I had some strong contractions. Two hours later I was admitted into the hospital and was 7cm dilated. =)p

  • My water broke while I was in bed trying to get a little more sleep. I was up the entire night before because my mucus plug was coming out and I kept waking up and cleaning myself off.
