    DD1- contractions started 5am approx, slowly kept getting stronger/closer together through the day while I went shopping/had coffee/ had lunch and generally walked lots with my hubby. Went to go hospital at 3pm when contractions were 2-3min apart. Had my daughter at 11.17pm.

    Dd2-only 3 weeks ago. Woke up and Felt really really uncomfortable so told hubby not to go too far. Had a normal day at home as a busy mum with a toddler.Thought bub had moved lower and I thought she was hitting my cervix through the day causing me pain but these may have been sone pre-labour pains. By 7pm I thought these pains are happening a bit more often and had changed to be more like contractions, by 10pm they were regular and nurse said to come in. I was concerned it was too early but I knew this was it. Arrived at hospital, assessed and sent to birth suite. Contractions were strong but good break in-between, decided to jump in shower as they were getting stronger. Only had 5 contractions in shower, then was ready to push. Pushed for 15min and daughter born at 2.13am.

    DD1 - At home - Lost mucus plug over a couple of days but didn't realise it meant impending labour. Started contracting on the Saturday was 4cm dilated on arrival, given steroids and pills to stop labour (30 weeks pregnant) that didn't work and gave birth on the Monday morning.

    DD2 - in bed sleeping, woke up at 3am with first contraction, had her 4.30pm that day.

    Woke up at 4am with contractions with DD1. Went to hospital at 8pm. Waters were broken at 2am and DD was born at 7am.

    With DD2, I posted a 38 week photo of pregnancy 1 and pregnancy 2 on FB commenting on how much bigger I was second time around. Had a bit of a "chat" with FB friends that were commenting on my photo. I then emailed my SIL telling her things were all quiet and no sign of any baby when I looked down and actually saw my stomach almost erupt and then I heard a pop and my waters broke. DD2 was born via C-section 2.5 hours later.

    I was woken from a good old arvo nap when my first contraction came.

    I knew I was going to go into labour that day though because in the morning I had been shopping in Myer and I felt a few niggly contraction type thingys and I lost my plug and a little bit of my waters. I was stupid enough to catch public transport into the city, alone, on my due date because I was convinced I needed a knitted blanket for DD before she arrived. I was even stupider to then catch public transport home (luckily only about a 25 min trip) instead of calling DH who works one suburb out of the city or catching a taxi (I can only blame that one on server pregnancy brain), luckily despite my poor decision making I was smart enough to pack a pad and spare undies in my hand bag. Interestingly the journey home on public transport was the first time I was offered a seat throughout my entire pregnancy, sorely needed at that stage! And I had just enough time to wash and dry the blanket I bought before we left for hospy and it was the first blanket she was wrapped in, so it all worked out well!
