I had back contractions. I couldn't get comfortable no matter what I did. I didn't even realize I was in labor, I called my sister in law first and described it to her, told her it felt like my vagina had the hiccups lmao it also felt like he was about to literally fall out of my vagina at any second.
she suggested I call my OB since I was only 37 along. So I did, she told me to come in and she'd check. She ended up sending me to the hospital to get induced because my blood pressure was so high.
I felt "off" then i started getting contractions.
1st - I was tired the day before. But just thought it was not from sleeping well, getting sick or just part of pregnancy.
2nd- I pretty much sleep the day before I had her. I thought I was getting sick.
3rd- I had everything under the sun for 5-8 weeks. but the day before I got a burst of energy. Then 4:30 hit and I had contractions every 20 mins, the worst heartburn and nausea till midnight. Everything stopped for three hours and then labor kicked in hard and fast.
Quoting cyork2:I had no signs, wasn't dilated or effaced the day prior, no contractions, nothing, my water just broke. lol I thought he was never coming out, but he showed up 2 weeks early
i got induced. but i was in a slow labor for a while. i was 3 centimeters dilated when i got induced. i never had contractions or anything though. my water never broke and i never lost my mucous plug. i was just dilating
Both of mine came on suddenly. I had no idea I'd be going into labor that day. I had the usual braxton hicks contractions, but that was about it. Just had the first contraction and BAM here we go!
