  • I went to my weekly ob/gyn appointment 4 days before my due date. He checked me & decided to induce me a week later. I went home & started having contractions that night. I went to the hospital super-early (5am-ish) the next morning, and had my son that afternoon. I think that the doctor checking to see how dilated/effaced I was actually helped induce my labor. Or either my son didn't like somebody else picking when his birthday would be... lol

  • Basically right on my due date. I was one of the girls who didn't know she was in labor. I guess it started around 3pm, and then I had the baby at 3am. 12 hour labor.

  • 1 week before my due date. 6 a.m. my water broke. 17 hrs from start to finish. But only had 3 hrs hard labor and about 30 minutes of pushing.

  • I went into labor 2 weeks before my due date. I had been in labor for 12 hours before I went to the hospital. I wound up having another 14 hours of labor before my son was born at 10 am. I only had about 10 min of pushing though, about 3 pushes. My doctor was actually surprised how well it went and said that I was made for childbirth!!

  • 38 weeks, induction. I had pre eclampsia w/ twins. It took 2 days to have them-they weren't ready!

  • i had an induction with my first at 37 weeks and with my second i went nearly 42 weeks.
    every woman is different, though.

  • i had a scheduled csection, when i went to my last dr appt. he checked me, and said that my son hadnt even dropped and wouldnt because he was to big. So i was given my csection the next day. If I had gone into labor, it would have been done as soon as i arrived..
