I'm 39+4 eith dc3 and wanting this baby out now! I've had an upset tummy for days, a few twinges here and there, my tummy has dropped....but nothing is properly happening yet!

So tell me your early labour signs and how long from those it took for you to be contracting regularly?

My first signs were contractions - baby born approx 12hrs later! No other signs, just contractions that gradually built throughout the day. Hope this helps!

I was restless and got leg cramps.
6 hours later my contractions started
33 hours and 12 mins later baby was born

Nothing noticeable until my waters popped - although I did cry a lot the night before!

A few days before I went to my obgyn for a routine appointment and he found that I was 2cm dilated. When he hooked me up to a monitor they found that I was contracting too - I had no idea and couldn't feel them at all... lovely invisible contractions didn't last long unfortunately

Feeling very suddenly tired, increased appetite, nausea and contractions.

Took a few days after that to get established though...
