Just four days before my due date, we welcomed our son into the world:
The day before he decided to make his appearance, I was experiencing contractions all day. I never experienced contractions with Toddler Checkers because my water broke first, and I wasn’t sure I would know what they felt like since I had never had them before. But trust me when I say you will know when you are having contractions. Someone once described them to me as feeling like menstrual cramps; this was mostly true for my early contractions. My contractions were not regular at that point, maybe happening once or twice an hour, so I didn’t think much of it.
