Did you "just know"?

Posted by   + Show Post

The day that you gave birth (besides a scheduled c-sec), did you have a feeling that you "just knew" it was going to happen that day? I did. I can remember everything about that day and thinking in the back of my mind that it was going to happen. At midnight on dd's due date, my water broke.

I didn't know with any of my three kids. With my oldest I woke up in labor, that subsided so I was able to sleep for a few more hours, only to awaken again in labor. With my second, I was told the very day I had her that I wouldn't have her anytime soon, so imagine my surprise when my water broke a few hours later. And with my son I knew he wouldn't be born on April 21, because he wanted his own name......I made a deal with my fil that if my son was born on his (fils) birthday then I would give my son his name (Armando) so thankfully my son was born on April 22 and we named him Gabriel.

My first no I was actually sure I wasn't going into labor. My second I woke up and just knew. My 3rd I was expecting in for weeks before I was induced.

The 12 hrs prior to realizing I was in labor, I had absolutely no idea. We were making plans for the next night since I was so certain the baby wasn't coming anytime soon. But then my SO made laugh right before we went to bed, I didn't know until the morning that I was in labor.
