  • With my first I was in bed sleeping. Well tiring to. I felt like I was wetting the bed. Got up and went the bathroom. Couldn't go so back to bed. Had this happen a few more times. Finailly while sitting on the toilet my water broke and 10min later contrations started.

    With my second. I was sleeping woke up to cramping.

  • With my first I was just hanging out and starting having a pain in my back that came every 5 minutes or so. Wen tot he hospital, I was in labor.
    With my second I was at a craft show and could barely walk with the contractions, but htey sent me home. Contractions slowed a little, then about 5 hours later I was sleeping and woke to very hard contractions.
    My water didn't break on it's own with either one.

  • Sleeping with both. My water broke and I woke up soaked with #1 and I woke up from the contractions with #2. Both were about 6 am that they woke me.

  • I was getting ready for my grandpas wake when I started getting the contractions bad and the spotting I had for days got worse. I went to the wake, went home, cooked & ate, showered and tried to sleep. In the middle of the night it hurt so bad I got up, took another shower, woke my fiance up and got my bag ready and got the carseat and was at the hospital at 8am. Had her at 4:57pm.

  • i woke up to make my hubby lunch and send him off to work at about 6 am. I had a little blood run down my leg and i went and used the toilet, it was my plug. Anyways..i ate breakfast, ended up walking alot, even on treadmill. I ate lunch. I didn't go to the hospital that night until my contractions were 5 minutes apart.
