    Default What were your early labour signs???

    I know this has probably been done before, but there has probably been a few new births and labours, so just after new and old stories

    I'm 39 wks today. Having BH type contractions for the past 2hrs, have been CONSTANTLY peeing all day, guts have been keeping themselves pretty clear too :/ tmi...
    Increased Mucous discharge for the past couple of days (tmi again,sorry) no bloody show though...
    Ummmm, oh and feeling slightly nauseous all arvo.

    so just curious about everyone else's experience with pre labour.

    TIA

    Nothing until the day I went into labour. Woke up with a mild cramp that got worse throughout the day, then lost mucous plug and started having contractions mid afternoon.

    Nausea for days before labour, lost show about a week before. The day of labour, had period like pain that started around 9 in the morning and went on all day on and off, than by 10pm that night was having regular contractions. Oh and had a bit of an upset tummy all day too!

    Its different for everyone, and yours sounds like its definitaley coming soon

    Good luck

    I had "period pain" and lost my plug and then about 24 hours a complete "clean out" if you know what I mean, a few hours after that my contractions started

    Nothing, no pain, no discomfort, no bleeding just a trickle of waters twice...two hours apart at 36 weeks. When I look back, perhaps more than normal discharge in the week beforehand and BH.

    I had a pretty Hollywood start to labour. I was just going about my business then all of a sudden my waters broke! That was my first sign I was in labour.
    I'd spent all pregnancy being told that it doesn't happen like the movies, imagine my shock when it did!

    Pre-labour clean out for the week leading up to, contractions 48 hours before birth. No other signs for me!
