  • I started having menstrual-like cramps that gradually increased in intensity and length throughout the night. I also had to go to the bathroom a few times... Sorry if TMI, but I had diarrhea, and the doctor said that it's your body's way of cleansing itself before labor. Before that night, though, I felt totally fine. I thought my son was comfy in there & in for the long haul! I had no warning signs until contractions started.

  • Honestly, I knew that I would have my baby within the next day or 2 when I struggled, seriously struggled, to give myself a pedicure. That was my majoring nesting sign :)
