I woke up and had this weird tightening cramp in my belly. I knew straight away it was labor and not BH. It was a completely different feeling for me.

I was having a lie down after being out for dinner. I was getting back pain and it was bothering me. I realized after a while that it was coming and going - turned out to be the beginning of a 3 day labour - started at 8pm ish on Tuesday night - DD born on Friday at 6:45pm. Very different to what I imagined as it was posterior.

Was having bh for about a good 3 weeks and was off to bed one night and mentioned to DP that the BH felt a little different...sort of sharper. Woke at 3am for a wee, stood up and water dropped all over the floor! Had DD that day.

Ahhh, starting figure how this works! You may feel pain or you may not, you may have cramps or you may not, nobody knows what they should feel like.....and by the time you know you are there is no doubt about it, it could be too late to get to hospital!....does that sum it all up?

I never felt my bh. I had no warning signs labour was coming. Just woke in the night feeling a heavyness like i had to go to the loo. 10 mins later i had a stabbing pain in my back which quickly wrapped around to a cramping in the front. Took about 3 of these, each 10 mins apart before i realised i was actually in labour.

Like mild twinges from about 12pm til 2:00am for about 30secs (the next morning) til they intensified and were centralised in my hips.
If I hadnt of had a show at 9:00pm, I probably wouldnt even have noticed the twingey feelings at all but once i had my show I was on contraction watch!!
*ETA:My BH felt nothing like my prelabour contractions.

my forewaters broke (a constant trickle rather than a gush) and i thought i was peeing myself! no contractions for 10 hours then mild period pain which gradually increased in intensity for the next 16 hours until I had what were obvious painful contractions followed by the urgent need to run to the toilet

I woke up at 4am from contractions. They weren't painful at that stage, just couldn't get back to sleep so I watched telly until DH woke up and I gave him the news that I was in early labour. They felt like period pain to me at that point and took a couple of hours to escalate enough to go to the hospital.
