  • I had to be induced with my first, so I never went into "full labor" on my own, but when I did show up at the hospital to be induced, I was 4 1/2 cm dialated and having contractions every four minutes, and didn't even know it.

  • I went in labor already in the hospital with an infection. My first contraction was at 3 am and I was at 7 1/2 by 10 am when they took me back for an emergency c section.

  • My first I was in the hospital the whole time, my second I was at home for the first part of it until it started hurting to walk. I'm on number three so we'll see what happens with this one.
