My oldest i was medically induced at 41 weeks. This little guy in my tummy i need to get out before Christmas or they are doing a csection he is really big so they have me trying methods at home to induce if possible
I started feeling nauseous and having menstrual-like cramps. It felt like I had food poisoning or something. But the cramps quickly got regular and stronger and I started timing them. Very soon, they were regular, timeable and I couldn't talk through them. That's how I knew it was the big day. :)
1st was induced at 42 weeks+, 2nd was a 33 week c-section...so I didn't go into labor until #3 and then it just started with a little back ache and some pressure and then went into full contractions. With #4 I thought I was in labor, but was sure when my water broke all over the couch LOL.
