It was the night before my due date and I felt contractions for the first time. They kept going until I was in full on labor in the early hours the next morning. It was not like OMG THE BABY IS COMING! It was like, is this it? Lol.

i got out of bed to drive my daughter to school and my water broke. it gushed allover! so instead i had my dh drive her while i showered and got ready to head to the hospital. the hospital wouldn't admit me- they didn't think my water had broken. hello! at least take a look, lol. i was soaking thru a freaking towel!

I thought I had the flu! I had diarrhea which got worse. Some time after having diarrhea for 5 hours I realized I was in labor, called my dh home from work and went to the hospital. I was 6 cm dilated by time hospital.

My first one I went into labor at the doctor office so I wasn't in labor for long before they gave drugs. The second one I was at home went into labor, the first few contractions were extreemly strong. After that they hurt and I could not talk through them. I couldn't move through them either. My husband called the doc said "hey this is the real deal" they said "call 911 if it's that bad" so he did, I almost delivered him there in the ambulance. I had him 15 min after I got to the hospital.

1st I had back labor...very intense pain in the lower back area, it was awful...I was misreable, sick, i think excited He was 2 weeeks late. . lol, 2nd was menstural like cramps in the middle of my lower abdomen, I was super exicted that time and he was 10 days early. 3rd was induced . That was by far my favorite labor..LOL, i knew when things where going to happen, everything was controlled, it was a really good experience, and he was on time!
