going into labor- let's get a count of when it happened for you

I have two questions: 1st question is I am leaking colustrum now at 33 weeks and 3 days and have been for about 2 weeks or longer. Is this norml so early?Will I continue to produce this until the baby comes no matter how much I leak out?

2nd question: I am just curious as to when all of you girls went into labor.? Like what week you were in, how long did it last, was it horrible, etc? Just anyting like that, and if you have any advice I'd love to hear it! I am just starting to get really excited about it all!!

  • i dont think that labor should be considered "horrible". it WILL be painful... but one thing to consider is that every woman has a different tolerance for pain. my water broke at 36 wk and 6 days. i was in labor for 20 hrs. and i pushed for 50 mins.

    some advice: get lots of rest... if possible, make a birth plan, have your bag packed... and take it with you EVERYWHERE, take lots of yummy snacks.. for you and your S0, take camera charger or xtra batteries, dont be afraid to help!

  • I was 41 weeks and one day. My water broke on a Sunday and had him on a Wednesday. Yep, days and days of natural labor fun (sarcasim). Stay hydrated, get as much sleep as possible and have someone you love there. Looking back, it wasn't as bad as some people say it is.I did it all natural and don't regret it.
