Did you know it was coming (pressure, increasing BH, etc) & besides being close to your due date or was it a complete surprise when the contractions came/water broke?

I just felt the need to push.. And it started getting more and more frequent and intense. I thought we should go to l&d just to make sure i wasnt in labor lol. i got to the hospital I was already 9cm and then I started feeling the horrible painful contractions.

Looking back I should have realized something was going on both times. I didn't want to eat. I felt sick and was really tired. But, both times I just thought those symptoms were related to something else. But, for both my labors my symptoms mirrored each other. My second was a big surprise because I had my 39 week appointment and they told me I wasn't at all dilated and it would probably be 2 more weeks since I was late with my first. 12 hours later I barely got to the hospital in time. I was pushing the second I got in the door.
