Your pre-labor experience
I'm wondering what everyone experienced in the days before labor?
Did your baby drop visibly or noticeably?
Did symptoms like heartburn or anything change?
Nausea/vomiting/diarrhea that came on before later but wasn't generally a 3rd tri symptom for you?
Increased braxton hicks or irregular contractions?
Mood swings? Extreme tiredness, irritability, or bursts of energy?
Did you realize you were in labor before your water broke or you lost your mucus plug (which I realize doesn't always occur right before labor)?
(I'm talking about symptoms that appeared a week or a few days before labor that weren't there before).
