all but the first were spontaneous labors, all starting with rupture of the membranes (including #1, but he was induced with pitocin after my water broke)
dd2: the first time 23 weeks, then a few times after that, finally delivered at 38 weeks 0 days
With both I had lots and lots of prodromal labor leading up to active labor. It felt like early active labor at the time! For days on end. With dd I started dilating and lost my plug at 23 weeks but managed to hold off on having her until 38 weeks. I was at 4cm my last prenatal visit before I had her.

(which legally is right on the edge of being an actual birth, rather than a miscarriage; the law here says 20 weeks is no longer a miscarriage. I missed it by one day, but I still labored and birthed, so to me it was a birth, not a miscarriage.)
with DD, it's more complicated, as I went into full-blow labor three times:
and finally 39 weeks
(actually, I was scheduled to go in for a non-stress test the day I wound up delivering...I was able to cancel the appointment when I came in to labor the night before)
DD: Went into labor naturally and gave birth at 39 weeks 3 days (although you could say it was an induction as well, as it all started with DS jumping on my belly and breaking my water! )
dd- born at home-41 weeks 5 days.
it was a rough wait..... i wish i had relaxed more.
in that order.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
