    I had no idea! I'd been to get my nails done and had an appointment for pedi and waxing the next day. Ended up with nice nails, but legs and toes like a yeti! Lol

    I felt 'off' with dd which I put down to the fact I had been out gardening all day in 36° heat=-O

    I has no symptoms the first time.

    The second time, I spent the day on the couch with back pain and lost my mucous plug. I went to bed that night feeling so sore and tired, but woke up half hour later with 2 minute apart contractions.

    No. I woke up in labour at 4:45am. Wish I had known as I would have gone to bed earlier the night before!

    I felt normal, the only indication I had was days of pink tinged mucous, but I was 41+1 the night I went into labour so I knew it would happen soon, woke up to contractions in the night.

    I had some lower back pain the evening before but still didnt really put it down to being early labour, just assumed it was braxton hicks. Woke up at 6am the next morning bleeding & freaked out (didnt look like mucus plug) & then the lower back pain got worse. No abdominal contractions whatsoever, just a constant lower back pain which got progressively worse. So it took a while for me to even realise i was in labour & not just braxton hicks. I was 40+1

    Absolutely fine, exactly like the preceding 9.5 mths.

    My babies don't engage till the labour is in full swing. I don't get BH or back pain etc. Very uninspiring.

    wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.

    In hindsight I had a very sore lower back and couldn't really focus on doing anything and was restless. However didn't know I was in labour until my waters broke with my first real contraction...he arrived just over three hours later.

    He was three weeks early and it was a day after I finished work so was not expecting or as prepared as I wanted to be!

    I must have been in painless pre-labour for nearly 2 weeks. However the day DD was born I didn't feel any different. I was at BigW browsing at 12noon and by 3:15pm I had her in my arms in hospital. Was a very quick labour really. Almost didn't make it to the hospital on time.

    The night before (I woke up at 7am in labor) I felt tired and a bit flu-ish, maybe a little nauseas but that's it.
