I'm approaching 39 weeks and wondering what your pre labour symptoms were? Hoping my first baby makes an early appearance as has just about every symptom apart from loss of mucus plug and regular painful contractions!!

Crying, not wanting to be away from home, period pain, sharp pains in cervix, backache. But I had these symptoms for 2weeks before my LO arrived x

Crying my eyes out at The JCB Song. And eating about 30 KitKats in a row.

back ache, urge to get everything sorted out last minite preps, tho these were with 2nd and 3rd. probably not what you want to hear but my first i lost mucus plug at 38weeks and had to be induced at 41+5 had him the next day by c section. but its different for everyone so fingers crossed it happens soon for you smile

I started shining the shower head and taps the other day cause iv run out of things to clean!!

Have been getting cramps and backache and stabbing vag for about 2 weeks now and finding it hard to move but forcing myself to walk the dogs for as long as possible to get gravity moving. Have also tried raspberry leaf tablets which are making my BH much stronger which supports the view that they strengthen the uterus in preparation.

I just wanna get things going so I have my beautiful little bambino home smile

Hmmmm... Ate 2 kit Kats yesterday lol

hibernation. refused to communicate with anyone, wouldn't answer the phone or see anyone, wouldn't go out my front door or even answer it. from about 48 hrs before the first physical sign of labour

I had a pre-labour the night before - regular contractions about every 10 mins that weren't particularly uncomfortable. I got up at 5am to see what was happening as I thought I'd better tell hubby to stay off work that day if labour was starting - but then they stopped completely. Nothing else that day then I got up to go to the toilet with diarrhoea (sorry tmi) at 1am the next night, waters went everywhere when I got back into bed (thank goodness for maternity mats!) and started with strong contractions 3 mins apart straight away.

This time round I am sore every evening, cramps, BH that aren't entirely painless and generally feeling fed up and uncomfortable! Been like that the past few evenings though sad x

Munmy2benny your first experience sounds like mine. I had regular cramps there at the start of the week that turned into nothing but have been so sore and so many BH I have lost track... I'm hoping maybe this weekend ...
