I'm 36+2 with DC4, my other DC all arrived between 35-36 weeks so I'm literally expecting labour to start at any moment. I've been having BH contractions on and off since Saturday, they're driving me mad as every time they start I think it'll be the start of labour. Remind me that I can relax because I'll know when it's labour.

I knew it was the real thing for definite, the pain! but keep reading all these stories of where mums had niggles or twinges and then the next minute baby was crowning!

If youve done it before then youll probably know when it really starts.
I only have 1 dd and i was in early labour for 4 days thinking they were painful braxton hicks and i was a wimp. It only hit me when my waters went and the pain was excrutiating. Baby arrived less than 2hrs later.
Tbh i am glad i didnt realise as it meant the labour felt very fast!
