    in the days leading up to it that you would go into labour?

    The last few days I've been beside myself. A complete hormonal gibbering wreck and uncomfortable. I've had no obvious signs like cramps or a show, but the way I feel I really don't feel like it's going to be long now.

    Did anyone else feel like this and were your suspicions right?

    Funnily Enough I Was On Here Asking If People Noticed They Got a Temper The Week Before Birth... and My Baby Was Going Absolutely Crazy. Then a Few Days Later I Went Into Labour Lol

    That's very interesting, because for the past 3-4 days my baby has been so active and then today, really quiet. I still feel her move but only little finger wriggles etc. nothing as obvious as usual.

    I've been feeling so irritable and exhausted and tearful these past couple of days and today, I can't quite put my finger on it but I just don't feel right. I feel a bit cold and shivery, nauseous and really tired. Like I'm coming down with something and a bit down. I'm already getting over a cold so I'm not actually coming down with anything that I know of.

    Inside I feel like this is happening for a reason, if that makes sense. I wonder if I'm right :think:

    yes, i did (although i did give birth on my due date so was kinda expecting things to happen anyway coz of the date!)
    but,

    friday morning - had a "feeling" things were gonna happen soon
    friday evening - effacing pains
    saturday - restless and very emotional
    sat nite/sunday morning - contractions started

    but yeah, the first sign was on friday morning i just kinda knew even before the effacing pains.

    I didn't suspect a thing! I had serious leakage (which turned out to be my show but the midwife said it was nothing!). I thought I would be 2 weeks overdue and I was 3 weeks early!!

    What do effacing pains feel like? Are they the sharp cervical twinges?

    I woke up in the morning and had a strange feeling that something was going to happen that day. I even said to my partner that i felt strange. I had no pains but was extremely hungry and just sensed something was different. Then at 11am i had my first contraction!! Very weird :shock:
