  • #2 was 39weeks and #3 was 39 weeks as well.

    #2 was natural labour....I knew it was labour because I had a nap, then had cramping went for a walk and it didn't go away.

    #3 was induced.

  • #1 was 39 weeks,5 days-my water broke. #2 was 37 weeks (c-section) due to A LOT of problems. We were overjoyed we made it to 37 weeks.

  • 35 weeks. I had twins. I didn't think I was in labor. I just had a few contractions. My mom asked every day if I was having contractions. That day I told her "kinda" and she insisted on running me to the hospital. I still don't think I was in labor. The lady was new and said I was 4 cm. Sure didn't feel like it. The day before at the dr appt I was 1 cm and ha been for a couple months. I don't know what labor or labor pain feels like. I eventually had a c section after 19 hours. But I had an epidural bc tey said it would start hurting. I got pitocin. Didn't feel a thing. My c section was another story. I felt everything!

  • Boy: 35 weeks, 2 days, water broke at home, no contractions. They started pitocin on me and I had him 7 hours later.

    Girl: 37 weeks 1 day, water broke while walking, some contractions, but not bad. They died off after my water broke, so I got pitocin, again, and had her 6 1/2 hours later.
