  • I had really bad braxton hicks the evening before my water broke. I was just very uncomfortable in general. I woke in the middle of the night thinking I was hungry,I had a feeling like I needed to pee,then my water broke. At that point,I was relaxed because I knew that "IT was TIME"

  • Nothing. I went to the doctor for my 38 week checkup on a tuesday late afternoon (4:30 appointment). He said my body was no where near ready. I said okay, see you in a week and I got up and went to work and at 9:00 my water broke in front of my students and my contractions started 15 mins later.

  • nothing really. i had the bloody show and some BH contractions that eventually got stronger and painful and started coming at regular intervals.
