Labor Stories Anyone?
OK ladies, I'm looking for some labor stories to keep me occupied until my second labor story unfolds. If you feel like sharing, write a comment on how your labor went and the days that led up to the birth. My first labor was pretty text book. I felt nothing until the night before when I lost my mucus plug. The next day I woke up at 6AM and contractions were coming about 5 minutes apart, went to the hospital and at about 610 PM Emily was born. With this pregnancy I've been contracting on and off for the last week or so. I am dilated a bit and thinned. The contractions have been coming on for like 2-3 hours at a time and then dropping off. Yesterday and this morning were the worst. This morning my contractions were 3-5 minutes apart and getting stronger even when I walked or sat or changed positions. I woke Stew up, showered, fully expected to call the doctor right afterwards and at around the 3 hour mark they just went away all together. UGH. Was wondering if anyone else experienced this kind of prelabor before the birth of their second? Anyway, just thought I'd see how labor was different for each of you!
