  • Not a thing was different. My water broke, and thought I had peed the bed. I cleaned it up, and went back to bed. I leaked all day, and I still didn't figure it out. It wasn't until 14 hours later, when it turned pink, that I realized what it was!

  • I didn't really notice anything different either. I was trying to get some last minute things done before I was to go in for a scheduled c-section. I guess my running up and down the stairs to do the laundry did the trick cuz it made me go a day early. my DH was convinced I was only having braxton hicks and I had to tell him he better get me to the hospital.

  • I was in labor for 3 days and didn't even know it. The dr. Said I was fine. Just drink more water and lay on side.

  • I felt good, very energetic. I was walking around a store when all of a sudden I had to sit down. When I got the energy to get back up I was fine, I went home and 2 hours later I went to the hospital. I had my daughter some time after.

  • I had some cramping in my hips all day. I joked with my mom about being the only person I knew of to have hip labor, but really it wasn't bad. Noticeable, but not painful or regular. I went into labor that night.
