On April 14th I had an OB appt at 8am. They did a cervical check and told me, "See you next week. You're not dilated AT ALL." That day I was exhausted (someone told me you get a burst of energy before labor?) and felt no "signs" at all.

At midnight my water broke. My son was born 7 hours later. I was 38 weeks to the day...

From the birth story of my first baby
On Wednesday October 9th, I went to see my midwife. I had been seeing blood for two days. I was a finger tip dialated and told that I would KNOW if I was in labor. So obviously the discomfort that felt like my cervix was stretching like a rubber band was just a normal part of pregnancy. She did say she was almost positive I would go into labor that weekend.

At 4:30 AM on Thursday, October 10th, I woke up to the discomfort again. This time the discomfort was 8-10 minutes apart and peaking after 30 seconds. Once I got out of bed at 6:00 AM, they stopped. I didn't feel them for the rest of the day. I even went for a walk that afternoon. We had a friend over for dinner that night. I was telling her that dh and I were planning on going to my Mom's house that weekend because I was sure the baby would be late. Ofcourse, I was having those discomforts again and they were again peaking at 30 seconds.

Around 10:30-10:45 PM , I was working on pulling some stitches out of the sling I made for the baby. During one of those discomforts, I felt a pop and some wetness and I knew that my water had broken.
She was about 7 hours from my water breaking.
From the birth story of my second
Wednesday morning, November 30, 2005 at 2am I felt like I had to pee so I got up and went to the bathroom. I felt like I had to pee again 12 min. later. I started to get suspicious when I had to pee again 11 min. later.
She was born 8 hours and 12 minutes after the first contraction.
As you can see, there was much less warning about impending labor with my second baby.
