39 Weeks + and no labour signs?


So I'm just over 39 weeks pregnant and apart from finally developing some uncomfortable pregnancy symptoms (slight swelling, achy hips etc) I have had no labour signs whatsoever. Anyone else in the same situation?

I had a midwife appointment today and baby is spot on for size and she is now engaged but that's it! I'm kind of hoping she's on time or late as an amazing new birthing centre is opening on my due date! But equally don't want to be induced as I think then I won't be able to use it.

I'm 39+6 and have no signs either, other than shooting pains down below!

Mw attempted a sweep today but my cervix was too closed! I too want to use a birthing centre so praying I dont need induced! Hopefully it's gonna happen suddenly and quickly for us!

I've got no symptoms either, I've given up hope that our little man is going to come early or anywhere near on time.

I had none with Frankie until 40+1 when I had stringy, mucousy discharge. The day after I had MW appt (it was a Thursday) and she said she thought nothing would happen until after the weekend as he wasn't even engaged. Got home from that appt and my waters went on the decking!! Went to the loo and my ENTIRE plug was in my knickers!!! Went to hospital to be checked out, he still wasn't engaged and I felt nothing. They reluctantly let me home, didn't really want to as he wasn't engaged but I wasn't far away and promised to keep in touch. Didn't start with any contractions until that night, and he wasn't born until the Saturday afternoon. So I went from nothing at all, to baby being born within two days xx

Good to know Mrs W! I get the feeling it will be sprung on me too due to how well I've been feeling all pregnancy! X

Well over 40 weeks now and don't feel any signs of labour at all - at my last appointment baby wasn't engaged either so I'm getting quite frustrated and just a little worried now... I hate the idea of being induced but fear that's what's king to have to happen now.

I've tried everything I can/am willing to to get things going but my body just doesn't seem to want to

Hi ladies, I'm 39+2 now and really ready to have this baby, unfortunately my baby isn't ready yet! I have a midwife appointment in 2 days and hoping she will at least tell me baby is getting into position.

I have a 2 year old who has so much energy and doesn't sleep during the day! I've taken him to the children's museum this week and out for a long walk as well as all the usual visiting grandparents and playing. I'm shattered but can't wait to have both my boys here
