For fun and wondering reasons really.. How many weeks were you when you went into labour. Were you expecting to come early? Induced? Differ from the other labours you had?

40+1 when I felt the first twinges and waters broke. 40+3 when DD finally made her entrance. I'd had an appointment with the midwife on my due date, and she said it would be about 3 days or so- she was right. So I was expecting DD to come when she did, but not that I'd go into labour when I did. I had it in my head that labour would be about 18 hours.

39+5. I was convinced I would have to be induced, I spent ages researching induction. But my best friend who had been saying for over a month the baby would be born that day was right.

DC1 37, 4
Currently 39, 4. Have had mega Braxton hicks and period cramping for a month. Beenjoying swigging raspberry leaf tea and drinking tincture, having acupuncture, rubbing clary sage but nothing.
Suspect is that I was gym addict last pg which anecdotally makes for earlier, smaller babies, but too tired to do much more than swim and walk this time. Hurry up baby!!
