Signs of Labour?

I’m 31 weeks with my first child. I was wondering if anyone had any signs of labour a week or so before going into labour? Is there any signs I should look out for meaning my body is getting ready?

I had a mucus plug which was a blob of pinky discharge a few days before.

I had no signs/Braxton hicks with my baby until I started having contractions at 40 + 4 I didn't lose my mucus plug until after I started having contractions either. I used to worry I wouldn't know when I was in Labour but there was no mistaking it when I did! Good luck op smile x

1st baby - Mucus plug after the deed, contractions day or two later then waters went.

Absolutely nothing with 2nd and 3rd baby, both ended in induction. 2nd @ 42 weeks and 3rd @ 39+4 due to health issues.
