I was fed up as had gone over my due date !

I felt sleepy but in a nice, calm way. My body just felt different, not bad or achey. Unexpected amount of energy, out and about, organising stuff. So it was surprisingly a 'calm before the storm' - the aforementioned took place on Sun/Mon, contractions started Tues, DC born Wed morning.

Prior to that I'd had plenty of rubbish days where I felt tired and in pain and plain fed up so it certainly wasn't the norm for me to feel so much calm!

I felt the best I ever had. Went out for a meal with friends, to the pub after, had a bit of a dance then home and asleep for 11, certain dc would be at least another week away. Woke up at 3am with cxns every three minsand dd was born that day.

So approaching 38 weeks and I notice I have good days where I have barely any discomforts and other times no sleep, cramps, aches, hard to move around and feel pretty rubbish. Those bad days I just hope I'm not about to go into labour as I'm so sleep deprived and fed up. I keep wishing there was a natural calm before the storm type of thing before early labour. How did you all feel leading up to labour?
