    Each labour is so different. When I had pre-labour I could still drive, walk, cook, sit down and eat. Early proper labour I could clean, walk but not sit still. Progressive labour I had to stop for contractions and needed the rest in-between!

    Glad things are progressing Pony. Not long now for the both of you.

    When I went into early labour with my first (Oscar), it just felt like bad period pain, but it was constant and not intermittent, so I didn't think anything of it. As the day went on, I felt a need to go to the toilet every 5 mins, and each time I tried to wee, it would bring me to tears. But I still doubted it was labour, as it wasn't the classic "coming and going" pain.

    When I started to get teary, my husband decided we should go in to the hospital for assessment. On examination, I was 5cm dilated at that stage.

    My point is, yes, labour is a widely varied experience! People said to me "You're a doctor, you should have known!", but it's not a process or feeling that can be taught at Medical School.

    Got stuck outside talking with the mum in law for 2 hours thismorning and left my phone inside and hubby was trying to call to check on me the whole time, gave the poor guy a heart attack, he was on his way home to me when I called back! He turned around back to work now he knows I'm ok!

    Pain has ramped up a little bit but it just feels like I have gas :-/
    Ur poor hubby. It would b hard for them going to work not knowing when they might get the call

    I had that experience too, J!

    We are taught in antenatal classes that labour pains come and go - start further apart and weaker becoming closer and stronger. With each of my labours - 3min apart from the start - and being a vbac I just had to go on pain level as to when to go in as it's usually at 10 min apart to go in for a vbac! For our last birth they told me to wait longer but glad I went in as I was already 7cm.

    So often there are so many women who are not part of the 'general norm' that I'm surprised they teach to the norm.

    Ponytail - any pain would be getting your body ready - it is all worth it.

    I had constant period like pain after the gel was inserted. It got worse after every internal. I never had contractions until my waters were broken. I was 2cm dilated at the time, and contractions tarred immediately at 2-3 mins apart. 3 hrs later I was fully dilated.

    Similar Smurfy really strong period pain after the gel but only 1cm when they broke my waters. Contractions 3mins apart when drip inserted but the first 3hrs only got to 3cm. The final 7cm took 50mins and pushing was 20mins
