How did you feel just before you went into active labor?

Right now I'm considered to be in early labor, which means my contractions are spiratic and not very consistant, but I'm 3 cm dialated. I was wondering what you felt just before you started going to active labor.

Were you really tired?
Did you eat a lot?
Did you look pale?

  • I felt perfectly normal. Maybe a little bit more achy than usual, but everything else seemed fine, and then the contractions started coming regularly.
