With Maya when I was in early labor I just hung out online, watched on demand Desperate Housewives and ate light (bone broth soup, walnuts)
Pretty much just had a lazy day! LOL It was so much nicer than going to the hospital to "get checked"
With both now (though i wasn't contracting with Rebecca), we went for a walk at the nature park, did some light cleaning around the house, and packed up stuff for 'just in case'... and then watched a movie, lol.
Well water broke at 1 am, so I went back to bed. Contractions started around 2:30 or 3 am but I stayed in bed until 5 am when I couldn't lay down anymore. I got everything ready. Layed out the birth kit, set up the birth pool and started filling it, made some snacks, got pans out for the pool later on, talked to family, went for a bunch of walks around town.
Mama to G, L & twins F & M

With Paul's labor, I didn't do too much, early labor started around 2am, so I spent the first 4-5 hours trying to rest and sleep. I spent the morning taking care of the girls and then by the afternoon labor started picking up so I just hung out in bed or in the bath.
I had pretty bad early labor for a good 24hrs. I thought it would be like that for a few days so I just did my normal day cleaning etc.. I did call into work since I barely slept the night before because of pain. I was angry that labor wasn't happening so I cleaned my entire apartment and mopped the kitchen floor and the contrax got worse. After that I put Kailey to bed and got in and out of the bath/slept until midnight, then watched movies while in labor until transition.
