I'm 39 wks today smile with DC2, but had a show 13 days ago. Thought I was getting lucky with an early baby but perhaps no such luck. All good with MWs last Friday including LOA and 1/5 palpable but have feeling baby has shifted to ROA grrr. Anyone else had a big gap between show and actual birth? Bit nervy now (aged 41 and feeling extremely lucky to have got this far) though still v excited. DS was nearly 2 weeks overdue so show really surprised me. Should I assume I'll go OD again and try to relax?

No useful advice from me but posting to wish you all the very best and hope the baby comes soon!

Oh you are a few days ahead of me, I'm 38+3 smile

I'm not sure. Mine is LOA I think (back is on my left, yes?) but ds2 was ROA at start of labour and turned to be OP just as I reached second stage. Thanks little chap smile

dc3 is now 2/5 palp. I had some old blood this morning but no proper show I think.

Are you having any twinges?

Thanks both smile <waves to Eagle>

Rooney, lots of twinges and mild contractions but wondering if this could go on for 2 more weeks. Had show about 3 days before DS was born and woke up in full-on labour with him. Obviously just a different story with this one, guessing baby will turn during birth (well, fx). Good luck with your DC3. Let me know how close our actual births are!
