how did you feel the day or day leading up to the night you went into labor? signs? symptoms? I don't remember how I felt with my daughter so I was curious. I have so many physical things going on.. I just don't know what to trust because my water broke with my daughter and I am here just... twiddling my thumbs and questioning every symptom.. UGH.. so.. how did you feel before you went into labor? were there things leading up it or was it out of nowhere? Thanks girls <3
With Fiona, I had days of pre-labour that slowly built up to the real thing. This labour was completely different, it literally came out of nowhere. I was a week overdue so, like you, I was questioning every little potential symptom of pre-labour..."Is this it? Is that a sign?" Instead, I went to bed feeling crappy and uncomfortable - but no different than I'd felt for the previous month...then out of nowhere at 11:30 I was woken up by a monster contraction, and there was no question about whether or not that was real. I knew the difference immediately.
I was irritable and sleepy. Alex was doing nothing more but following me around and whining. DH had to interfere and take Alex away so that I could get some rest. After my nap I felt bad about snapping at Alex so I took him to a water park I was exhausted. An hour later I went into labor. I think it is important to note that Alex's behavior gradually worsened the closer I got to labor. I truly believe he recognized the changes I was going through and was reacting to them.
