What week did your labour start spontaneously?

37 weeks today and as I am technically considered “full term”, I am starting to wonder when things will start... I know most women go into labour at 40+ weeks but was curious to know what your experience was with spontaneous labour.
Thank you!

Also almost 42. Was booked for a 42 week induction on the Tuesday, labour started Sunday night and baby arrived on Monday.

Oh, and fwiw, all the women in my maternal family go 'over' unless induced before the EDD. Among all my aunties and cousins, none of us have experiences spontaneous labour before 40 weeks and my third child was seen as quite 'early' for only being 4 days past the EDD!

1st DD 37+5 days
2nd DD 37+2

Both too impatient to wait :-)

First 38 and second 39+2. I was so sure I'd go over and need inducing, I was pleasantly surprised!

Was induced at 42+2 and really regret it but didn't feel I had any choice but to do what they said.
