Quoting xtina 8d 2go(HBC): you went into labor? did you have any clue you were going into labor, no idea at all? what symptoms did you have? also for those that water broke, did you know you're water was about to break?
with my daughter, i felt like crap the whole week. i thought it was a slight flu. i continued working though. the day before i had her, i was at work, leaned over the counter talking to my boss and she made the comment "thats it youre not on schedule next week cause youre having this baby tonight!" anyway, the next day, we woke up at 8am, i was in pain and said we better go to dr. my appt was at 11 and he said i was 2cm and 80%. he suggested going home and wait it out til it was unbearable, then go to hospital. so, we left for hospital around 1pm, checked in at 1:30. i had her at 8pm.
with my son, he stopped moving. i was told to go to l&d by my dr. we got there about 7pm. i was 2.5cm and 90%. the nurse stretched me to 3cm so i could stay. contractions really didnt come until 9pmish. they had to give me pitocin cause i wasnt making progress....at 4:30am i started pushing, he was born at 4:47am.
they say each labor gets shorter, but i dunno. my first was 12 hrs, second was 9 hrs. i have a feeling this one will be just as long!
