Yay! Labor dust! W my 2nd I was in early labor for 19hrs. Then my water broke and it was on! Contractions were hard and painful and I had LO 2hrs later. Almost had her in the car but made it up to triage in time for dr to catch her basically lol

Good luck!!! 6.5 seems promising so I hope you get baby SOON!π Oh and! I got contractions as close as 7-8 minutes once around 37w but they stopped overnight :( Once they were the real deal and that close together I had to stop talking during them and just breathe :)

I went into labor while at work! My co-workers were more anxious than I was. I kept calm and drove myself home to wait for my SO before calling my doc. 12 hours later my son entered the world.

My contractions started hard and every minutes. My water broke within 1 hour of contractions starting. Unfortunately, that's as far as I got and then needed a c-section. Good luck :-)

I started having contractions at 3am. I wrote down every single one I felt all day. Once they were 3-5 min apart we left for the hospital around 8pm. When we got there I was 6cm dilated, 100% effaced & baby was in +2 station. Epidural 2 hours later then water broke about 15min after that. Started pushing at 12:15am and she was born at 12:53am!! Praying for a smooth & safe delivery ππΌπ

I went pee and had a gush of bloody "water".. I freaked because it was bloody... But they told me it happens.. But I went straight to the hospital. I was in active labor, but I was not dilating. I had to have an emergency c-section, due to my sons heart rate dropping.. Good luck!!

I felt completely fine the day I went in to labor. I was 4 days past due. I went with my mom to a doctors appointment since I was feeling fine. After her appointment we went to my grandmas house & as I was getting out of the car, I just felt water gushing down & thought I peed myself. I soon realized it was my water. That was my fear! I ended up going home & going to the L&D around 2am. I was only 2 centimeters but they admitted me. 34 hrs & a c-section later, I had my daughter lol GOOD LUCK!!!

I was induced but it's really not as bad as people make it out to be! Get your epidural as soon as you can! I pushed for maybe 45 minutes (only because baby was TOOOO large!) I did have to have immediate surgery afterwards to sew my cervix back up.. (Inside, not just your normal tear) good luck momma! You'll be fine π
