I was 37w2d. Had NO idea I was in labor. DH made me go to the hospital that morning because I said my back had been hurting a little all night. Got to the hospital I was 4cm. Had him 5 hours later. He was 7lbs6oz :D

40w2d

And about as spontaneous as you can get. I was 1.5 cm dilated, no effacement at my 38w5d appointment all the way up until I went to the hospital. I had a membrane sweep that day which did nothing but make me cramp and spot a little. At my 39w5d appointment I had an AFI and an NST due to decreased fetal movement and scheduled an induction for 9 June. Still 1.5 cm dilated. Went home feeling pretty bummed and figuring this kid was in for the long hall.

Started having regular, but manageable contractions the night of 30 May, woke up at 8:30 the morning of 31 May to increasingly painful contractions averaging 1-3 minutes apart..got to the hospital at 10:30am, still 1.5 cm dilated and prepared to go home despite not being able to walk due to the contractions being so intense. By 2:30pm I was 4-5cm so I was admitted, 2 hours later I was completely dilated and my son was born at 6:46 pm.
