Was induced at 40+7 last time so no experience of going into labour naturally and not sure what to expect.

40+11 today, booked in for induction the day after tomorrow.

Lost my plug overnight, had low achey period pains for 2 hours but fairly constant, not coming and going like contractions. Also vaguely queasy and mild headache. But I could be symptom spotting.

Had a sweep two days ago at which I was 1.5 dilated but only 30% effaced. Both of which were progress compared with a week previous.

Someone come along and tell me I'm going into labour today?!?! grin

It was a false alarm in the end. I was induced at 40 + 13 in the end, so didn't get the lovely serene waterbirth of my (naive?) imagination. But I did have a scrumptious baby girl last Saturday grin
