Despite knowing all the signs, virtually every woman going into labour convinces herself that even though she is carrying a full-term baby, she is definitely just experiencing very bad indigestion, a touch of the runs and has wet herself all at the same time.

All of the following are good signs that labour is under way; if you experience any of them more than two weeks before your due date, call your midwife straight away for advice.

Diarrhoea – this may be an early sign that things are hotting up. Some people also experience a feeling of constipation.
Lower back pain or cramping - can be dull or stabbing pains.
A show/loss of mucus plug - look for a snotty, jelly-like blob or a red or brownish vaginal discharge.
Contractions - regularly spaced contractions that feel more intense than Braxton Hicks = the real thing. We're in business, baby.
Your waters breaking - sometimes quite suddenly. It could literally happen AT ANY TIME!
Heaviness in your pelvis and the urge to push - oops, too late.

I thought I was constipated and sat on the loo for ages trying to poo. Suddenly realised it was the baby's head!

Quote 2
I was woken at 4.30am with stabbing pains in my lower back, it took a little while at first to work out what it was. I didn't realise - and nobody told me - you could get labour pains in your back.

Quote 4
My husband confidently exclaimed, 'That's it, you've got your serious labour face now.' It really cheered me up and made me laugh that someone else could read my face so well. He was right; our son arrived about four hours later.
