    At about 10pm my braxton hicks contractions started feeling a little 'different'. Nothing triggered it, I was lying on the couch! Ignored it and went to bed, woke up a couple of hours later as I was having regular contractions - bit hugely painful but uncomfortable enough to keep me up. They sloooowly increased over the next 12 hours, went to hospital at 4pm, DD born with the help of forceps at 8:30 the next day. She took her time!

    Had my waters broken at 11.30 am, first contraction not long after that. Drip put in at 3.30 pm, hospital notes state that I was in established labour at 5 pm. DS was born at 7.30 pm.

    With DD, pains started about 6am and got worse as the day went on. Ended up having her at 4.16am the next morning. My waters broke 11 days before I had DD. Although the silly midwife who examined me said it was probably my hind waters and wasn't too concerned. When I went into the birth centre and was getting checked the midwife couldn't feel any waters around DD's head!

    with DS, I had cervidil inserted about 4pm. Pains started within 15/20 minutes. Ended up back at the hospital about 7pm after my water broke. He was born at 8.37pm that night.

    My three were born between 4.43pm and 10.30pm :-)

    Labour started with dd1 at 5 am but dd2 and DS it is a bit harder to pinpoint as I had weeks of spurious labour due to an irritable uterus..
