Where were you at when you went into labor?

I was SUPER freaked out about this when I was pregnant, but ended up having to be induced. I was terrified my water would break at a store and I would be embarrassed or something, but now I kind of feel like I missed out and wonder what my story COULD have been.

Please share!

  • I was induced and she was 16 days late... they had 3 nurses pushing down on my chest to get her out after an emergency c-section... she's 14 1/2 now - sometimes I think if they didn't drag her out, I'd still be carrying her around in there - lol

  • I was sleeping on the couch when my water suddenly broke with my first. My couch was soaked. With my second my contractions started while I was getting my hair cut and I was by myself and had to drive home. My water broke while I was walking down the stairs at my house. It was awful...water pouring over the stairs. Both times I had to use a huge towel between my legs so I didn't soak the car lol.

  • My water broke in bed. I made the mistake of going to the hospital once I figured out what it was, and had my first contraction there. I wish I had stayed home until I was in active labor.

  • My water never broke until I was in the hospital bed...but my contractions always started in the middle of the night in bed...then we would go to the hospital and then the water would break when I was almost fully dialated
