The few days before I gave birth I felt crampy and a bit under weather, I didn't have much energy and spent the days on the sofa relaxing. Because of pre eclampsia I was at the hospital the day before she was born and was checked. My cervix was completely closed and prosterior. Eight the next morning I stepped out of bed and my waters broke over the floor and my contractions started up.
It's made me a bit happy. Had my 37 week appointment today and was told i was completely closed, and only 50% effaced. Was really bummed, as I am scheduled for a membrane break at 39 weeks, and would like to have it happen naturally instead. BUT, who knows
Each pregnancy and each woman is different. With my first I had no clue that labor was on the horizon. My first clue with him was my waters breaking and then the contractions kicked in. I felt nothing out of the ordinary with him. With my second I had some clues a few days before my waters broke. I went poo a lot more, I had some mild contractions and just felt overall anxious that labor was impending. Labor can come on slowly or very quickly. Good luck!
I was in and out of labor for months but the week before my daughter was born, I was very edgy, very nervous. I knew I still had a month before she was due, but I just was sure she was going to show any time. I was anxious, just wanted to be done. I don't know if this is because I knew she was coming, or if it was because I was just having such a miserable pregnancy experience that I was just ready to be done and have the complications and pain come to an end.
