I had bloody discharge all day. 4 hours of active labour followed that. Longer than with my first, but much better!

    Default Early labour pains

    I had contractions that felt kinda like period pain but it kind of felt like a wave traveling up for my memory, which I could also feel in my back. I had them from early evening until the next morning, then my waters broke and the contractions got so much more painful fast from there. They were constant in the first half of the night, every 10 mins for 30 seconds. But by morning wierdly enough they slowed and I was only getting them approx every 30 mins but not constant. I thought at that point it must've been fake labour considering they had slowed and were no longer consistent.... Until my waters broke! Lol
