  • My second pregnancy was harder on me but the delivery was shorter, I had mini contractions all day and then about 5 I called my hubby at work and told him it was time and he needed to come home.

  • I have 4 children. My second child, Michael, I had 2 weeks of back labor and false labor before he was born. I was in and out of the hospital off and on for 2 weeks. Taking a warm bath helps, it soothes the pains. However, my water did break while in the tub. But this doesn't happen all the time.

  • Labor? Well, I was induced with all of my children but my labor was easier and went a lot faster with my second. I knew what to expect so I think that was why it was easier for me.

  • It gets worse with each one! you never go back just the way you were! This is my third and by far, I get those round ligament pains, they hurt way worse! I am dreading the BH! I am just under 15wks. So I know I have a little bit But I know it is gonna hurt!
