Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
1st one went into labour in middle of the night and felt I had to poop.
2nd one was induced sent home and knew
3rd one was 2 weeks early and never realized until I had "gas pains every 5 miniutes"
every time is different, but honestly you will know when you go into labour trust me
With DD, it started as menstrual-like cramps. I was only 34.5 weeks along, so I went to get checked out. I was in active labor, had no idea. My water broke in the hospital after trying to stop my labor.
DS, I spent the week leading up to it getting sick at night. My water started leaking that Friday evening, so I went in. I was actively contracting and again had no idea. Again, I only felt menstrual-like cramps. I never experienced contractions that I could time myself with either of them.
had timeable weak contractions on Sunday night for a few hours.
Went to bed and they diminished, in the AM when I got out of bed they were back, stronger, and closer together
With DS, I was induced with Pitocin and the doc breaking my water - I ended up having a C-Section.
With DD, I lost my mucus plug and had contractions about 10-15 minutes apart the morning of my 39 week appt. When the OB checked me for dilation, I was 5cm dilated! She sent me to the hospital and DD came out 2 hours later - vaginal delivery with no pain medication!
