How long after you started having contractions were in actually in "labor"? And how far along were you?

 i lost my mucus plug around 330.  and started getting contractions once that happened. i didn't go to the hospital around midnight and i was only 4cm when i got there.. i didn't have him til 236pm the next day via csection bc i stopped dilating. (we then found out he was almost 10lbs and facing the wrong way!)

 I never notice contractions first. My water always breaks first.

Something like only 10% of women actually have their water break so I'm not counting on that happening. With my first I lost my plug and 45 min later was in hardcore labor. I never noticed contractions befor loosing my plug with her. I had her at 38 weeks via c-section because she was breech. This time im 32 weeks and went in Friday and had contractions 20 min apart. They feel like they are getting stronger and are about 15 min apart but it's hard to tell. I was starting to dialate Friday so who knows how that's going. I told my dr like a month ago I was pretty sure I lost my plug but he said it was to early so I don't even know if that's still there or not.

40 Weeks along, went into labor on due date, gave birth following day after 21 hours of labor. I was in labor an hour after I first noticed them getting stronger
