Re: Anyone go into labor sporadically?

With ds1 I was napping and at exactly noon I woke up with contractions. I didn't ever have BH prior to that, and I had a bloody show after I was in labor. So I didn't know prior and didn't think it would be that day either.

With ds2 I was in prodomal labor for 8 days prior to my water breaking on it's own.

It does happen! Like they say, everyone is different!

Sure, I lost my plug, but I don't count that as a for sure sign of labor anyway. I was not crampy, not even dilated or thinned at all when I went to the doc that morning. I woke up to pee in the middle of the night and my water was slowly leaking. I kept thinking I might be peeing myself! lol

I had no signs of labor whatsoever. At 41 weeks by water broke and 7 hours later she was out. I never lost a MP, had any Braxton Hicks or anything.

Yup, and it wasn't until after my water broke and I was at the hospital that anything (besides water breaking) started happening.

Stood up to get out of my car, and BAM my water broke. It was my due date, and I had just been talking about how I KNEW he wasn't coming on time!

Re: Anyone go into labor sporadically?

Yes! With DD1, my husband got in the shower and I was fine; by the time he got out of the shower, I was having STRONG contractions every 1-2 minutes and we went straight to the hospital (I was 36 weeks). I had had NO signs of labor until then, and my water didn't break until she was born...45 minutes after we got to the hospital. Good luck!

W/ most of mine I never had impending signs, just went into labor or my water broke.

Re: Anyone go into labor sporadically?

Me! I went into see my midwife when I was 41 weeks with my daughter. She checked me, and I was was still at the same place as I was at 35 weeks. That was the last time she had checked me as I allowed her to do it when she did the the Group B Strep testing, but didn't after that. I was barely 1 cm dilated, and maybe 75% effaced. My cervix was also really, really high and posterior. She felt that labor would not be coming on its own, so we needed to think of other options before I turned 42 weeks.

Anyway, I had no signs of labor coming! NONE! It was so depressing as I was looking at a VBAC and could not be induced. Well, I went home, went to bed at 9, then was woken up at 11 with a strong contraction. I went to pee as it still had not hit me it was a contraction. When I wipes, there was my mucus plug. :] It just hit all of a sudden. So, yes, it is VERY possible! Good luck mama!

ETA: I never do have braxton hicks or anything like that during my pregnancies either.

Every woman does go into labor eventually, promise. We need to keep in mind that only about 30% of women go into labor spontaneously before their EDD.

With my 2nd I had no warning text books signs of impending labor. I just went into labor.

I had this happen with DS, except I sat down after a shower and pop. No BH, nothing to indicate he was coming anytime soon.

This time I have lost my mucus plug and had one random night of contractions, but I have a feeling it's going to be the same way as DS.
