I have a new theory that spontaneous labor mostly starts at night or in the early morning so I thought I would ask here. If your labor started naturally, what time of day did it start?


With my first daughter I woke up to a strong contraction at 6 am and I suspected right away that it was the real deal.

I recognized that I was in labor at 4:30/5 pm. But I had back labor and had been in some pretty intense pain since that morning so... Dunno?

I started having timeable contractions around 6:00pm, and by about 10:30 or 11:00 pm they were 5 minutes apart, lasting 1 minute each. She was born the next afternoon.

all mine started evening ish, except my first. I woke up at 6am with my water breaking, and then had spaced out contractions all day which really picked up in the evening.

:-( I was never in active labor ... my water ruptured at 4pm on a Saturday and continued to leak all day with no contractions whatsoever. Ended up being induced around 7am the next day since my water had been leaking for so long ... felt contractions after the Pit started ... those Pit contractions SUCK

With ds2 I had strong contractions all throughout the day but didn't think I was actually in labor. My water broke with him just as I was getting ready to shower at 11pm. He was born at 12:05pm the following day.

Ds3, again many painful contractions that eventually spread out so I went to bed. I woke up at 2am as my water broke in bed, he was born at 6:24am.

So, it holds true that my spontaneous labors began late in the evening/early morning.

Animals in the wild usually go into labor at night too, it's probably the safest time.

With my 2nd, my water broke at 9:30 at night (but I had to call my mom to see if that's what it was). Contractions started right after that.

With my 3rd, my water broke at 5 in the morning. I got up, showered, and then laid back down for a few hours till hubby woke up. I had contractions, but nothing unmanageable.
