  • Yup. Everyone is different.
    The first time around, mine lasted almost a week! They were able to stop the labor process. The second time around, it was for about 8 hours.

  • I didn't with my first at all.  With my second, I was going into active labor and had diarrhea.  I had her a few hours later.  I agree with the other ladies though, it just depends.  How I knew I was going into active labor was because I was REALLY hungry after I had diarrhea and when I ate again I had it again.  Thats how I was for sure.  Call your Dr. and see what he or she wants you to do.  You never know,   ;)
