38 weeks not even a twinge. Am I in it for the long haul?

30 weeks pregnant and I haven't felt so much as a twinge. No braxton hicks nothing. Im worried this means I'm going to be very over due by the time baby is ready to come.
Other than an aching between my legs and a slight pressure feeling sometimes I can't feel anything!
Midwife has said I'll be offered a sweep on my due date but I don't feel like ill be anywhere near ready!
Just having a little moan really im so ready to no be pregnant any more!
Has anyone not had any signs and gone into labour with their 1st grin

Not necessarily. I was the same. dS came at 38+5, DD at 39+0. Nothing, then first twinge to 10cm dilation on 6 hrs.

I had felt literally nothing at all and was convinced I would be 2 weeks over. I went to bed at 10pm and woke up in full blown labour at 3am...baby born a few hours later. I was 38+5.

Hope it happens soon for you!

I didn't have a single symptom until my waters broke.

My waters went at 39+6, contractions started straight away. Went to hospital and I was 4cm dilated, I hadn't had a clue before my waters went that anything was happening. Good luck smile

I was the same. Just tired at 38 weeks but then I stopped work so it was better. Due date came and I was convinced I had 2 more weels to go. Anyway I walked my dog for a couple of hours as usual. Went to bed that night nothing. Up at 3am for a wee. My waters broke then I had DD at 7 am when I was 40+1 absolutely no symptoms until my waters broke.
