  • "Foggy". Like there was a detached,distant feeling. Like when you're getting the flu, sorta. Or have taken cold meds. Just kinda like having a harder time staying forcused, present...

  • I had some "show" at 4:00am and mild cramps. I was one week over due and was going in the next day to be induced. I pretty much knew it was time when I saw the "show" - cramps got a little bit more painful and by 1:00pm I went to the hospital where I was 5cm - by 11:50pm I had my first little girl. It went by so quick and wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

  • The day I went into labor I would say I was just like the first poster. I was very out of it in a way. Everyone kept asking me if I was ok and I was like yeah why and they said I just seemed diffrent and very quiet. It was odd now that I look back at it but at the time I didnt realize it but I felt very relaxed. I didnt have any contractions or any kind of show and then that night my water broke.
