Ring for an ambulance? Don't tell the taxi firm you're in labour?

Is this your first? Any signs other than the show? Anyone with you?

A show doesn't mean you are in labour. You can have a show weeks before labour starts. I wouldn't go to hospital unless you are having regular and strong contractions. Why don't you contact the labour ward for some advice?

Don't think you can call an ambulance unless in really advanced labour. They will laugh at you.

I went by taxi - as did my 2 sisters.
