Mine did not leak at all, and i have never heard of that being a sign but it might be

Aw Katzguk, I remember the last 2 or 3 weeks I was looking for ANY sign that labour was iminent (sp?)! I'm afraid mine leaked for most of the 3rd trimester.... but don't remember any leakage near the onset of labour.

How many weeks are you???

38+3 but DD was born at 37!!!

Mine leaked from about 5 months too! was horrified at the time! Like the others, noticed no increase in leakage prior to labour, sorry sweetie.

How frustrating Katzguk!

My ds was born at 39+2. So I just assumed dd would be earlier. I had a show at 35 weeks and thought OMG! MW said that could mean I would give birth within the next couple of weeks...NOT! I think I timedmy BH contractions everynight for about 3 weeks.

Dd was then born at 39+2 also. Have you tried sex??? It triggered contractions with me at 39wks, was examined and was 2-3 cm. 2 days later and still no contractions so I dragged DH off to bed again and Hey Presto!! Dd was born about 12 hours later.
