    Default How did you feel before going into labour?

    I had false labour on Saturday night (BH that came on suddenly, starting at 7 mins apart and increasing in intensity up to 4 mins apart for 4 blo0dy hours).
    I've had heaps of nesting days etc...but now I just feel crap. I feel nauseous, tired, irritable and as though thus baby is never coming out. I can't sleep at night even though I've slept like a log lately. Very uncomfortable and going to the loo constantly.
    How did you feel before labour? Great or cranky & irritable??

    Exactly like you. Exactly. I came out of 24 hours in hospital in labour, only to be told I was still 2-3cm and firm and posterior. That's when I believed that baby was never coming out. I believed I'd end up with a Caesarian at 6 weeks overdue.
    I gave birth at 9.23am the next morning.

    Default How did you feel before going into labour?

    I had DD3 2 weeks ago. For a couple of weeks leading up to the birth I nested like crazy- it was like I had OCD. The week before I had her, I had so much energy. I couldnt stop moving and had to be doing something- anything!- constantly. The day before I had her i was really emotional, felt sick and like I had a cold, nausea, and really tired.

    I felt crappy. Tired and nauseous. I had 3 days of pre labour though, before I insisted on being induced. BH are a good sign. It's your body practicing. Not long to go. :-))

    I felt normal, well normal for a pregnant person. I lost my plug in the morning and just knew I was going to go into labour later that day and I did.

    DD1 - I felt rested and ready to go. Did not expect it - she was three days early and I woke up with contractions and was in laobur.

    DS-2 - I felt like CRAP! I was tired in general as I had not been able to rest this pregnancy, DD was still waking up at night, I had 24 hours of pre-labour. I was so tired and over it and I am sure that is what made his labour so hard compared to DD even though they were almost the same duration in time.
