I had a strong feeling in the morning that I was going to give birth that day. I remember calling DH in work and telling him to get ready! I had cramps and bh most of the day and the typical clear out. I was also off food and had craving for full fat Coke lol
The only way I can describe it was unjust felt odd, and then, if I'm putting it delicately, evacuated every bit of everything that was in my bowels and I assume intestines contractions started about ten minutes later.
I don't remember feeling off. I had my show a week before, I had a day where I had labour pains throughout the day but then they stopped by the evening. 3 days later when getting up to go to the toilet I just felt my waters pop. Three hours later contractions started.
