Beginning of Labor?

Hi there Ladies,
This may sound SOOOOOO dumb as this will be my 3rd child. However, the first one my water broke but I did not get contractions, not even really with Pitocin. It was 31 hours of hell, did deliver him, it was a mess...... no need to go over it again.

The second was a planned induction which quickly went to a c-section as the baby was laying sideways.

So I have never went into true labor on my own. However, this AM early I woke up sweating profusly with what I thought may be bad gas pains, but it was different. It felt like my intestines were bloated and hallow, but the pain resinated over my c-section scar and down my legs and went about half way up my uterus. I tried to time them, but they were so sporatic and would last 20 seconds to almost 2 minutes. The baby would move in between the pain. This went on for about and hour and a half and then subsided.
What do you experienced labor and delivery Mom's think? Was it maybe a false start or bad food?

Re: Beginning of Labor?

This sounds just like what happened to me with my 2nd. I woke up like you had the same pain and sweating, it was sporadic then went away after about an hour and half. The next day I went into labor for real at about 3:00 pm-my water broke and delivered at 7:11 pm. So this could be false labor, but it may also be a warm-up so speak, for the real thing. Good luck!

PS don't feel dumb asking even if it is your 3rd, I have had 3 babies and each pregnancy and delivery was completely different.

Re: Beginning of Labor?

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. My repeat c-section is scheduled for Aug 1st, but I have been praying to go earlier. I will still have to have a c-section none the less, but I have to be in real labor in order to have the baby before the 1st. Maybe it will happen!

Thanks again!
