DC1 and 2 started with breaking waters, could DC3 be different?? Any experiences?

Am 38+4 with DC3.
DC1 born at 36+3, waters broke with a gush and contractions started about 5 hours later, baby born 6 hours after that.
DC2 born at 40+5, waters broke with pop and gush, contractions started about half hour later, baby born 3.5 hours after that.

Am sat here now with tightenings across my belly and cramps in my lower tummy and the odd one around my back. Have felt like baby was going to fall out of me all day with the downward pressure.
Don't want any food and feel a little restless.
However, no waters anywhere, no plug ... have had one bout of fake contractions about 9 days ago which just moved him much lower down.

Thoughts ladies please? Is this the start of something potentially or am I just wishful thinking?

Cx started at 3.30am, then nothing really happened until about 9pm when lost plug, and waters went at 10.45pm, 6 mins before he was born! From my experience it sounds like something is happening, good luck! smile

Thanks, but sadly no!
Went in, things slowed down and got sent home. Hoping things will start again soon.

Thanks for replying.
