  • With my first ( second child was c-section) I was standing in the kitchen talking to hubby and felt something wet go down my leg, like a little trickle, I was so embarrassed! I thought I lost control of my bladder and peed myself! My sister was the one who, in between gales of laughter (at my pee pee theory) told my hubby to get the car ready!

  • My story is boring - I was sleeping!! Lol. :)

    I kept waking up thinking I was sleeping on something wrong, cuz I had a ton of cramping and back pain. I'd go back to sleep for like fifteen minutes and then wake up again. Finally I was so uncomfortable I got up and sat at the computer...eventually I realized that this "pain" was coming regularly every 9-10 minutes so I woke my husband up and we went straight to the hospital!

    I wish my story was more exciting than that! Haha. Maybe this time around...

  • I was induced the first time. The second time I was shopping with my best friend. We also had plans to grill burgers and have a nice dessert. I absolutely refused to go to the hospital until I had eaten my dinner AND dessert because I knew I wasn't getting anything to eat at the hospital. Everyone was freaking out because my contractions were regularly 7 minutes apart, but I was fine with it and HUNGRY. He wasn't born until midnight, so I had plenty of time, lol.

  • Twice, I was sleeping. Once I was at bible class but that really wasn't labor. It was a weird pain, my placenta was abrupting.

  • ROFL at slw123! I wish I had had the foresight to eat all I could before I went to the hospital. I didn't get anything to eat for like 24 hours. :-P Bleh.

  • I was working on my son's baby blanket when my water broke. I was two weeks early, my husband was talking on the phone and I did not have my bags packed for the hospital. I starting working on the bags. My husband wanted me to talk on the phone, I ignored him or something. He hung up and asked me what my problem was. I told him I either peed my pants or my water broke. My husband the big bad cop stood in the hallway saying, "what do we do, what do we do." I ultimately ended up having a c-section. But still funny thinking of my hubby freaking out in the hallway!
