Most of my labors were stop and go for at least a couple of weeks before I gave birth. It was maddening because this would happen right up until the night or day of labor.

With my first, my water broke first so that was a tell tale sign labor was near. I think I only had one other birth where my water broke and that was in bed.

Only a couple of times did I have a pink or light bloody show.

My contractions would gradually get closer and closer together to the point that I had to breathe between contractions and I knew birth-day was here.

With my fourth pregnancy and first son, I went to a weekly prenatal appointment to find myself already 5 cm dilated! My doctor wasn't letting me go home so we headed to the hospital.
