I got to be one of "those people" who went into labor the night before their induction! Woke up at 3:30 with contrax 2-3 min apart and after a weird stop and start labor and 20 minutes of insane pushing she was born at 3 PM in the birth center. 8lbs 3 oz and recovering well!

I'll do the real birth story and stuff later

Long story short:

Contrax started at 3:30 a.m. the night before we were scheduled for induction, they sort of continued in an abnormal pattern once we were in the birth center. I had to do lots of nipple stimulation and walking to keep them going for most of the day. Just when I said "let me take a nap and then I'll get up and make them come on more strong"...they wouldn't let me nap! Back labor began in earnest. Jacuzzi use seemed to slow things down for a bit but as long as I'd pull up out of the water and lean forward, I'd get HUGE rushes and even though the mw didn't think I was really progressing well and left the room, I was in transition in what the nurse called "went from 0 to 60" and was screaming like a crazy person and just didn't handle pushing all that delicately whatsoever (believed I asked for every drug available) and in 20 minutes of my body essentially taking over, she was out. She was really gurgly, had a nuchal cord and was what they called "slow to start", apgars 4 and 8, and so she was suctioned pretty extensively which might be contributing to our latch issues now SO, all in all, good birth and very happy I got to experience NCB since she's my last
