    I wanna know how ur labour started & progressed from having pains (regular labour contractions), a show or waters breaking (including if ur waters were broken for u in hosp).
    Im basically trying to find out the % of people who have a show first and whos waters go first etc... thanks :)

    If you've had more than one preg then just use ur most recent ;)

    I did add an other option... but its not showing grrr :twisted: so if its none of the above then cud you please just give details!

    I had period type pains for about 24 hours, then a show before going to hospital where they eventually broke my waters as i wasnt progressing quickly enough. He was lying not quite back to back more on his side!!

    I had period pains throughout the day which gradually intensified, started getting contractions around 5pm.
    I went into hospital at around midnight and got my show not long afterwards.
    I had to have my waters broken with the crochet hook thing when I was fully dilated, James was born at 5.30am :D

    i had very mild "contractions" (effacing pains) every 5-8 minutes on the friday nite, they eased off on saturday. but when they came back on very late saturday nite/early sunday morning they were proper contractions, then i had my show late sunday morning and melissa was born at 4.45pm
    i never noticed any waters but i had a long shower sunday morning and was in the birthing pool the later half of my labour

    I felt my waters brake and went to the toilet and my show was in the toilet so they happened at the same time. Pains started a few hours later.

    I had been losing my plug gradually for a couple of weeks, then on the Tuesday at 11pm as I was getting ready to go to bed, I lost all the plug that was left (pretty bloody), then we thought why don't we put a couple of towels in bed just in case and lol as soon as I went to bed my waters broke - 10 minutes after that my pains started - I was in hospital by 00:30 :)
