  • yes with my first daughter. I was a new mom at 19. I didn't know i was in labor. I thought i just had really bad gas and when i got out of the bed my water broke.

  • I did! I woke at 4.30 in the morning with labour pains, hospital didn't want me until 10.30 though, and I wasn't allowed any pain relief until 4pm. Oh I could have killed someone that day!

  • I went into labor the evening before, my contractions had started but they weren't painful (I thought I was only having braxton hicks) Woke up in the morning in A LOT of pain, got the the hospital around 8:30-9 and he was born at 10:55.

  • With my first, I was very restless the night I went into labor. I tossed and turned and finally got up at 2 am to shower because I just couldn't sleep. My water broke as I stepped out of the shower and ctx started shortly after. Seems to be my routine. It was the same with my third, but I was restless and couldn't get comfortable all day before labor started that evening.
