I had a really weird, quick labour with DD. I didn't know that I was in labour til it was picked up via u/s, then again via an internal. I was having silent contractions (I didn't feel them) that were regularly monitored. The OB and midwives has never seen anything like this and thought I was crazy lol
My waters were broken by the OB at 8cm and that's when I actually started feeling my contractions, hard and strong!
I birthed a very healthy and content DD 2hr, 57 minutes later without tearing/needing stitches.
My labour was long in the sense that it progressed over a few weeks and it took 18 hours to get from 4cm to 8cm, although I couldn't feel anything.
I'm curious if anyone else has had a similar labour/birth and did it happen with consecutive labours? I have read of two other people having this happen and both times their waters naturally broke as they began to push, they didn'y feel any contractions/pain until this point. I'm preparing myself for possibly birthing at home or somewhere random if the same thing happens with baby 2 unless it is picked up by the OB again.
