Re: Tell me about the start of your previous labors!
#1: Started mild contractions on a Friday even went to the hospital Friday night but was sent home. Contractions all weekend, back pain started late Sunday night. I felt a pop 8am Monday morning and sure enough my water broke. Went to the hospital, epidural and all that, couldn't feel anything--not even pushing. DD was born around 5:30pm.
#2: Contractions started around 2:30pm. Labored for several hours, in out of the birthing tub, hot showers, etc. Midwives broke my water for me sometime well after midnight. Contractions intensified but progress was fast. Pushing was short and not very painful. DS born around 2:30am.
#3: Is taking her sweet time--nothing yet. Hoping for a MUCH shorter labor this time around!
