  • i felt great. it was all a waiting game until the pitocin started to kick in. my water broke in the morning. then once i really started having contractions and was allowed to start pushing it was like 40 mins until i gave birth.

  • The day before I went into labor with both my girls. I was very tired. I slept as much as I could.

  • Labor stared when my water broke. The morning started with me sitting on the pot, thinking it will be another one of those days where I need to poop but can't. My water broke about twenty minutes later after an unproductive bathroom visit.

  • well i was crampy the night before i went into active labor, so now i know that is was in early labor all night. i slept but not well, and woke up a lot just thinking "geez i'm so crampy and uncomfortable". lol. i was 41 weeks so you'd think i'd have a clue that things might be getting going, but i was to the point where i thought i'd be pregnant forever. before that night i felt pretty much normal, felt large, pregnant, sore, and tired but really not too bad. gl!
