  • Lol I love this question. I didn't have to say anything the first time because it was scheduled induction. The second time we had been writing down contractions all day but they weren't consistent. We weren't sure if i was the real deal. I wasn't really in any pain and had been having Braxton Hicks for several months. At one point I was on bed rest.  But I started thinking it was the real deal when we were sitting at a restaurant that evening and I had a complete panic attack(not normal for me) and I started sobbing. I told dh I didn't know what was wrong with me but that I felt something really bad was going to happen soon. That was just minutes before the REAL contractions came steady and strong! To this day 3 years later I cannot eat at that popular chain restaurant lol

  • With my labors, he was the one who told me~ lol
    I was just working through my progressing-intensifying braxton hicks and he noticed things weren't just practice anymore.

  • Though we were split, I called him at work and told him I was going to the hospital to be induced. At the time I was heading to the house to get my bags and then omw to the hospital. That's it. LOL.

  • I told him i was in labor and he didn't believe me because he had plans to go out, my best friend had to call him yelling at him to get his ass home. He thought i just didn't want him to go out because i was 10 days early.

  • I have went into preterm labor 3 times already.. both times I have been hurting so badly that he knew :P I hope when it is time that he won't think it is another preterm labor time for ER and shot to stop the contractions.
