  • Water broke at 34wks. In labor for 18 hours and then started to run a fever and baby's heartrate started rising so we did a c/s. Second baby contractions started at 32wks and were every 7-15 minutes until my c/s @ 40wks. Turns out he was malpositioned and had a freakishly short cord so he could not decend into the canal and change my cevix. So for that one I was in labor or 7wks. Totally sucked. You should have seen what 7wks of contractions does to a baby's head. :(
