Did you know when you were going to go into labor?

How did you feel beforehand? Any other symptoms besides water breaking or contractions?

  • I was having contractions for about 2 weeks before DS2, so no I didn't get much immediate warning.

    Though when my water broke I was lying in bed and it felt like a huge kick and I knew that my water had broken and I threw myself onto the floor (gently of course) so that I didn't gross up the bed.

    I was induced with DS1 so no warning there either.

  • my water broke. I heard a 'pop' and whoosh, water came out of me!... so I knew I was in labor!

  • I lost my mucus plug and started feel crampy the day before my water broke. I knew labor was coming a week before it happened, and I had him at 37 weeks 5 days.
