It is sooo different for everyone and every child. With my first I was just uncomfortable and grumpy, with my second I was sure I was going to die, pain was unbearable in my back, couldn't even stand by the end of it and usually I deal with pain like a champ! My water never broke with either of my boys ( most don't )

Kinda like menstrual cramps, but come and go, start out like and get harder or hurt more then lessen and almost go away.

really? Your water didn't break?

I guess I'm mostly nervous because I am already having severe back and leg pain and the thought of it getting worse makes me cringe. Granted I have a pretty darn high pain tolerance and I say it with honesty, but this makes me nervous. I've been in some horrible accidents and I know what to expect with normal bodily injuries, but this is something I've never experienced and the unexpected factor of it really gets to me.

Do not expect your water to break, I believe that 70% of womans water do not break.

I didn't realize I was in labor with my son (my one and only for now...) because I didn't feel contractions except for a very slight tightening on occasion until my contractions were 3 minutes apart. Arrived at the hospital at 8 cm and my son was born 2 hours and 44 minutes later. Didn't get any meds either cause I arrived too far along. I did end up with back labor AS SOON as my butt hit that stupid hospital bed. That was the worst part. My water didn't break either until they punctured it. 10 minutes later I was pushing!!! Fun story.

Anyway, I pray Tica decides to foal soon...the mares on mare stare are boring me tonight...perhaps because 3 of them went this afternoon and I saw 2 of them. And good luck and best wishes to all those pregnant human mom's out there! I hope to be one again next year.

I'll jump in real quick, my water broke just as I was rolling out of bed to go to the bathroom when I was holding off for so long to begin with. Never had contractions until about an hour after they gave me the shot of potocine(sp?) after checking into the hospital. Everything is so unpredictable and different for everyone. Wishing you the best!

I just read 30 pages hoping there would be pictures of a cute little foal at the end. Im giving your wonderful mare 3 days. If no foal by then, Im driving to your place and having a talk with her

She has been warned :)

Never forgot the horse that taught you to be fearless (Braveheart RIP) the horse that taught you to stay strong no matter how bumpy the road is (Caesar) and the horse that always had to test gravity by throwing you in the air (Cali)

How's everything going with Tica today, Nightside? Any changes? I'm rooting for you in this wait! :)

I had back pain and my water broke, so I figured I would go on down to the hospital. After that it was lots of hating my husband, cussing out nurses who said I was too far in for an epidural, and after some more cussing I got one, lol. That's when I took a 2 hour nap and the hospital stuff woke me up and said they'd make me get a c-section if I didn't have that baby soon. Pissed me right off. But I had her naturally.

No change in Tica. Her udder seems a touch bigger but that's it!

I think I want a partial epidural. If I can't walk or anything I may go insane. They knew what to say to make you have her lol

This mare is going to drive us all up a wall.
