Hi all,

I'm due Sunday, but I'm getting really fed up now...
My hips are aching, I can't sleep at night, my stretch marks are itching so bad (started about 3 weeks ago) that they wake me up at night, heartburn is beyond unbearable, I'm bored of being at home... Need I go on?!
I had what I thought was a show, happened last Saturday (12th) and it was a bit of blood when I wiped (very mucusy) for about 12 hours then it completely stopped. Had it again on Good Friday for about 3 hours and completely stopped again. Has anyone experienced this before?
Other than that, not a single sign. Baby was 1/5th engaged last tues, appointment tomorrow to see where we are with that. No braxton hicks throughout whole pregnancy. Baby still quite active. Taking raspberry leaf and had vindaloo last night, a whole pineapple to demolish today. Regular sex was happening too but now daddy has put his back out- not during the sex! Playing football with the dog lol.

I feel your pain, I am only 38 weeks but feel just like you. I'm struggling day to day with my 2yr old son too. Hopefully our babies will come soon!

It's so rubbish right at the end, if it helps at all with my first I had no signs that anything was happening no Braxton hicks,no show, absolutely nothing then went for a nap one afternoon woke up switched the kettle on and had a contraction another one ten minutes later and they just continued she was born 12 hrs later.
But you have my total sympathy I remember thinking nothing could be worse than the first trimester ha ha ha how wrong I was ;)

I'm not sure everyone gets signs at all. I went to bed one night at 37 weeks and woke up at 3am thinking I'd wet the bed - turned out my waters had gone (I am not usually a bed wetter so that shouldn't really have been my first thought!). I had absolutely no idea that it was going to happen.

I never got the nesting thing that other women talk about - the house was still a shit tip.

Happy 39+3! I'm due the same day as you. Having the odd cramp since last Wednesday and nothing else, it's a difficult time . This is my second so have been promised that it will be quicker than my 5 day long induction last time - it bloody better be. Is this your first? Chances are you will go over.

Feeling anything different today? I am getting anxious now when people ask when I'm due and I say "Sunday!". I'm still in denial.

I'm 38+2 and the first round of 'have you had it yet??'s has started already angry

I too have had no real signs, no BH, no mucus / blood, just getting bigger and bigger and more and more cranky! I'm too knackered and awkward to do any 'nesting' - just brooding quietly over the carpet crumbs and then falling asleep.

I'm 41 weeks today and still no sense that anything is about to happen. Have been getting Braxton hicks for weeks and have noticed bits of what I'm assuming is plug over the past 10 days. Am hoping to have a sweep today after a failed attempt at my 40 week appt.
Feeling more resigned to the wait now but just want baby here! Luckily I feel fine though it's just the waiting and boredom

Hi all,

My waters broke this morning but not had a single contraction. I'm booked in to have a pessary thing tomorrow at 12 to hopefully bring things on, have any of you been through this procedure? If so, what happened??
I'm praying I'll get contractions in the night tbh as the process of induction is a long one!!

Hope your all experiencing some signs or something, even when you do your still in denial lol x
