What were some of your symptoms...

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

What were some of your symptoms...

I'm looking for some of your just not by the book symptoms that labor was coming very soon...or that you were in early labor. I have had some of the normal things...nausea, diahrrea, lots of contractions however, not real regular yet. BUT, I am wondering if I have been having a lot of contractions this evening, and I also have been shivering...I haven't had this before with my other labors. I am just curious if any of you have experienced this. ANd, wondering what else you dealt with that wasn't in any of the books, ya know?

I was convinced I wasn't actually in labour, which seems to be fairly common as a symptom of labour :lol:
I could get the contractions regular if I worked at it (bouncing on a ball whilst at the puter, drinking raspberry leaf tea etc) but they eased off whenever I stopped, that was over the 2 days before I had Violet.

The day before I also had a really solid really restful nana nap. I guess it knew I wasn't going to get much sleep that night between contractions ;)

Good luck. I hope you're not kept on this edge of not-knowing for long, and that you get the birth you've been hoping for.
