  • diarrhea-like/menstrual-like cramps... that was about it.
    I did have an urge-- like "nesting," to stay around home, not go out to the planned activities for the day. It was just an odd, "cancel the plans, need to rest" thing. ;- /
    But those cramps quickly were accompanied by braxton hicks that became regular & frequent. Then became more intense... labor.

  • My water broke. I was sitting down and felt a pop...Then I stood up and it POURED!! I soaked 5 towels just getting to the hospital - about 30 minutes later I started having a little back pain..then they got stronger. I was really lucky..By the time I had about 5 bad contractions, I got an epidural.
