How did you know you were in labor?

Did anything happen right before your labor began? Oh, and if anyone knows when they lost their mucuc plug, how long after that before you went into labor?

  • I got induced, but I knew the labor began when I started feeling a tightening in my rib cage. I thought it was my baby stretching. Turns out it was the beginning of labor!!

  • I'm on my 3rd, lol. What I find interesting is that practically NOTHING is predictible! Everyones experience is diffrent, everyones labor and birthing is diffrent, it's amazing.

  • I had sex right before I went into labor! About an hour after we did it, I started getting contractions...I waited for an hour and they got a little worse, so I called the labor and delivery and they told me to come in...and after a couple hours I had my baby boy!

  • lost my mucus plug about 3 days before, had early labor the night before, my water broke in the morning, active labor started a couple hours later. i didn't know i was about to go in labor, but i was just all crampy that night before. and i was thinking about not going in to work and then my water broke in the shower! :) i should have known it was coming since i was 41 weeks ;) lol
