DS was induced at like 11am, but thats induction

DD I noticed the labor start around midnight.

Myself however, it was late afternoon before my mom started getting signs.

With dd my first real contractions started as I climbed into bed. I looked at the clock and it was exactly midnight. She still has a flair for the dramatic.

With ds I took a nap, woke up around 3 pm and started having contractions.

Ds1: induced so no data.

Ds2: 2:30 a.m., didn't realize it until 4:30 a.m.

Dd: 11:00 p.m. water broke, labor began 3:30 a.m.

We used to breed dogs, and I can tell you that 3 a.m. is pretty standard for a mammal labor!

That's funny, because it seems like 3AM is a favorite wake up time well into the second year in this house.

DS- Thought something was up at 12PM, labor started for sure at 6PM, born at 2:22PM the next day.

DD- Woke up with strong ctx at 5:30AM, born at 11:30 AM.

DS1 -- induction.

DS2 -- painless contractions started around 11:30 a.m., stronger ones hit around 6:30 that night, then picked up a ton around 8:00, after ds1 was asleep. DS2 was born at 5:52 p.m. the next day.

For me, both of my pregnancies I went into labor in the early morning. About 7am both times. Which, incidentally is when I almost always start my period--first thing in the morning. So, you can imagine when I expect I will go into labor this time!

With #1 and #3, I was induced.

But with #2, I first noticed it was labor vs. BH around 8:00 a.m. He was born 3 hours later. Realistically, I was probably in early labor since at least the previous night, but attributed it to BH.

Midnight, pretty much exactly.

Went from no signs of labor to contractions 5 minutes apart. Water broke at 12:30.

My 3 were also early early morning. I had quick labors...started between 12pm-3am. All born between 2am-6am.

For this one I would like an early evening birth so I can sleep all night But by the responses on this post I'm guessing thats not going to happen.

my water was leaking all day, probably starting around 11am or so? but i was in major denial about it, since i was only 35 weeks. continued to leak throughout the day and evening, contractions finally started about 11pm, 3 hours after my water started gushing. i was in active labour by 1 or 2 am, born at 9:21 am.
