I had posted here that on Sun & Mon that I was having on/off "labor". Well, it was real labor that just never got consistent. They were menstrual like ctx, then stronger ones that wrapped around to my back, then back to the menstrual ctx the next day but not consistent, they'd peter out when I layed down, then stronger longer ones lasting a minute with 2 very mild ones inbetween (like menstral ctx). They were wierd...14 mins apart, 30 seconds apart, 8 mins apart, 4 mins apart, 30 seconds apart, 10 mins apart etc. I layed down cause I thought my baby was posterior (ie-longer labor maybe) and that I better get some rest cause I have a long way to go (since they weren't consistent but the 1 min ctx were very strong).
I layed down at 3:30pm after my DD went to G-ma's and had 1 ctx and then 1 very strong ctx 30 mins after laying down. And then that's when I felt the "pop" and my water broke at 4pm! MW barely made it and I caught my baby girl in the water at 5pm! Extremely intense but so awesome! What an awesome experience and I had the birth of my dreams! We are so in love with her

p.s.- note to self...remember that even if the ctx are very irregular with non-labor like ctx inbetween...it could still be "real" labor. LOL!
p.s.s. - Another reason why I didn't think it was going to happen soon...I felt her hiccup about 2 hrs before I had her! So I guess that hiccup theory isn't always true
