  • #1, i was feeling crampy all night (early labor i suppose), and then my water broke around 9am, had DS1 at 6pm
    #2, early labor all morning, active labor all afternoon, water broke around 6:15pm, baby born at 6:45pm

    so with my first early labor began at night and active labor in the morning, with my 2nd early labor began in the morning and active labor in the afternoon.

  • Mine started a 2am on a sunday, but it slowed down for most of the day and then started again. My water was leaking for 18 hours before I knew to go in to the hospital. I had him on monday at 11:50am.

  • contractions started at 12:00 NOON exactly. I was already up and ready to go to my OB appointment. i had him at 7pm that day, so, I am nothing like the norm or average.
