I am 37+6 and itching to meet my DC2! I can't remember much from last time and my contractions started during the night so was asleep beforehand but I'm wondering if there are any tell tale signs that labour is approaching? Or am I just clutching at straws?!
Did you notice any really early labour signs at all????
Hmm not really either time - with ds1 I was walking (slowly, painfully) through town a few days before and started to cry at the salvation army band which was odd as I realised later they had been playing outside the hospital window when my mother had me. (not the same lot, obv)
then immediately before my waters went I had a sudden need to use the toilet.
Second time nothing at all - sitting on the sofa one morning, had a small pain and thought it was wind. Then it went away then another a few minutes later...brain started to compute. He was there within 3 and a half hours
DS arrived at 35+3 after waters went 35+2, so a bit of a surprise, so since thought back whether there were any warning signs. Had a little bit of show 3 days before, but just thought it was a late pregnancy thing. Also -ahem- cleared out my system (but thought it was all the grapefruit juice I was craving at the time) and DS went quiet. Absolutely no pains, twinges etc until I actually went into labour. Didn't even have a clue his head was engaged.
