  • I had braxton hicks for so long I didn't realize it. I went in to be induced and was told I was already in labor. It wasn't active, so I still was induced. Once it really hit though, there was no denying I was in labor.

  • You would think!
    , I knew when I was in labor all three times and I also knew when I was pregnant! LOL. I am just amazed at that "I DIdn't Know I was Pregnant" show on TLC. How dumb???? And they go to the ER thinking they have appendicitis or something. LOL. Oh my.

    SHe had it in the TOILET?? Ewww. poor baby!

  • I thougt I was having BH (thought real contractions was suppose to hurt) little did I know I was in labor. Good thing I went to the doc for my prenatal check up I was already 5cm dilated. it can happen.
