As the title says....I am curious what you were doing or where were you when your waters broke, lost your plug, went into labour or started your first contractions?

Taking the dog out to the toilet. Waters broke and poor little thing didn't end up going out for a while as I got so excited 😊

I was going to bed.
I'd spent the evening folding baby clothes in a really bad/teary mood, thought that was weird so wore a pad to bed. Thank goodness. 15 mins later I went to hospital for inspection.

Both times, I woke up with a dull backache around 5ish in the morning, went to the toilet where I noticed I was losing my plug. Went back to bed with a heat pack and woke with period pains which were the start of my contractions.
Waters broke at the hospital both times while sitting on the toilet!
DD1 was born just after 3pm and DD2 was born at 3:20pm.

I had lost my plug over a few days following stretch and sweeps and had had runs of pre-labour. I was already 3cm dilated and fully effaced.
My first contraction hit at 11pm at 39+1 I was in bed dozing and DH was awake. It hit like a lightning bolt and I knew this was real labour.
Contracted all night it stopped at 6am when I had a bath was 4cm. Went for a walk after a nap. Nothing. At 11am I got on the breast pump and POP there goes my waters. Ran to toilet where my real plug came out OMFG it was so big and think and long I thought I was having a cord prolapse.
Contractions started immediately and I was fully dilated within 3 hrs.

#1 - 41 weeks and leaving a restaurant I had to rest on their sign out the front when a big contraction hit....that 5 min walk home took 45 and I still can't look the servo man in the eye after spending 10 mins holding onto his petrol price pole!!
#2 - bus home from work at 37w5d via hospital for a quick check as lazy bubba hasn't moved since night before....induced.
Hubby disappointed he didn't get to do the speeding through red lights in the middle of the night for either bub 😜

It was about 7pm, DF had just gone out and I had just come back from my daily walk and was on the phone to my mum, telling her how I hoped my labour would start with a stereotypical waters breaking, when... My waters broke!!!

DS we went to a friends house for lunch, by mid afternoon I felt pretty bad and was telling my friend what was going on to which she kindly pointed out I was in labour! Took a while though as he wasn't born till the following morning.
DD I went food shopping, had some twinges but thought nothing of it. By 1pm it dawned on me they were quite regular. Rang the hospy at about 2pm and cause she was breech they got me to come in, 3 1/2hrs later she was born.
Wasn't very good at realising I was in labour!
