  • I was induced because at 42 weeks I had had ZERO contractions, so I was only at the hospital once

  • I didn't have any. LOL I found out I was pregnant at 19 weeks along. Then, I never really had any symptom or contraction until the day I had an appt. at 40 weeks and 2 days along. As I was getting ready, I had contractions that got stronger and I was in labor and had him 7 hours later. I assume that because it was so uneventful that next time....I am going to have every issue known to man and false alarms and anything else I can think of. Haha

  • Zero, I try not to go to the hospital until I'm in the pain of my life and contrations are even closer than 5 minutes apart.

  • None. I was induced at 39 weeks. I wouldnt have went in until my contractions were close together at regular intervals and i couldnt talk through them. Thats how you pretty well know its

  • probably twice with each (5) and most of the time I was right after they went and sent me home, my water was leaking, they said it wasnt I went home, and it broke completely!
