How Did Your Labor Start?

TOTALLY out of curiosity: How did your labor start? For example, did you begin to dilate and then X amount of time later go into labor? Did your water break before or after you began to dilate? How long were you in early labor before you went into active and then transitional labor? And so on and so forth... (Alright, I'll be honest. I have a girlfriend who "has dropped" and begun to dilate. I am flippin' out of my mind excited! Her little lady will be here soon(ish?)! So, I want to hear your stories! We're all different and...

Episiotomy with First, Experience with 2Nd?

I had a minor episiotomy with my first born. It really was not a big deal for me . . . made it so much easier to deliver and the recovery was really a breeze compared to other mothers I know. That was 26 months ago. I am due next week and the hospital stance is no episiotomies. Did you have an episiotomy with your first, and not your second? How did everything go for you? I m curious about other women and their experiences. Thanks!

Information on Pre-term Labor the Second Time Around

We are in the process of thinking about having another child. With my son I went into pre-term labor at 28 weeks. Since he was fine they left him but for 10 weeks it was several trips to the hospital, sometimes a couple of times a week, to get shots to stall off labor. My son was finally born at 38 weeks and he was healthy! After several tests my Dr. did not know why my body went into labor so early. I was wondering if any of you were able to have a "normal" pregnancy after going into pre-term labor with a previous child?
