Just for fun because I am bored as hell....how did you know, if you knew, that you were going to be going into labor extremely soon?

Besides the obvious water breaking and/or contractions.

For me, the day before I went into labor with my son, my whole one side of my belly went flat, like flatter than pre pregnancy. And you could see this boy turning around. 9 hours later I went into labor, but I remember thinking "oh boy, this is it. It's happening tonight."

With my daughter, the day of I just felt "off" I couldn't quite put my finger on it but I just felt funny from the moment I got out of bed. That day at 7 pm I felt the first real contraction.

I was forty two weeks pregnant, so I knew it would be any time, but other than that I was non-stop vomiting for like six hours before I went into labor. It was awesome.

Did you have the stomach flu? I felt like I was going to hurl while I was in labor both times, but not until after the contractions started and were on top of each other.

Nope. I didn't poop at all. I pushed for 3 hours and no poop. I think I was just lucky.

My cat literally followed me everywhere. In the bathroom, up the stairs, you name it.
