  • uhm i was at work when i just started to slow down really quick. and it was hard for me to walk from my station to the bathroom and it seemed like i had to go every couple of minutes. went home and three hours later went to the hospital and popped out a baby! the days before it i felt like my belly was extremely heavy too, but that's just me.

  • I knew from about Saturday that it was inevitable ( i was just 35 weeks with premature rupture of membranes). Labor progressed real slowly, and he was born thursday.

  • :-) yeah. I had a feeling that Friday when I left work (DS was born at 36w6d) that I would not be returning, and jokingly told my coworkers so. That Monday morning at about 2am I woke up with a weird feeling. I went to the restroom (which I did frequently throughout the night, ofcourse), but something didn't FEEl right. Pretty sure that my water had broken, I took a shower (in anticipation on the long hospital stay, I wanted to be fresh and clean going in atleast!). In the shower my water DEFINITELY broke! So yeah, long before contractions started I had a FEELING something was going to happen, before my water even broke. Contractions started MILDLY on the way to the hospital around 6 am, then really started in around 8:30. DS was born at 2:59pm. :-)
