1)how many days were you when you went into labor

275 days from LMP

2) How acurate were your dates ?? meaning do you think your due date was even calculated correctly based on your real cycle or conception or ultrasound??

Date was calculated by me based on my real cycle (AF every 4th Friday between 1 and 3 PM, O'ing on CD13 - yes, I could set a clock by it lol!)

2) did your water break before labor? ( they say this is uncommon)

DS was born with bags intact
They actually "broke" it just before he was completely out

3) What symptoms did you experience before going into labor???? Did you have any idea it was coming the days or weeks before???

Honestly? I felt like I had the flu .. and AF'y type cramps - just headachey and really couldn't sleep (it was around 2am when it started.. DS was born at 6:23 AM!)

4) any other thoughts you think would help first time moms know about regarding due dates and labor ( besides that they are pretty inconclusive)

Honestly? Ignore them - they don't mean anything. If you think you're in labour, you probably are .. with DD (8/24/03) they insisted I wasn't in labor when I went in to be checked, yet half an hour later I was at 8CM and no contractions that I could feel - I just knew something was up .

Trust your instincts, that's probably the best.
