If it helps, I had a lot of BH and so much pressure at the end of my pregnancy that I was convinced I was going to go early... nope she was born at 41+1. Think it’s just something that happens when it wants, regardless xxx

I had absolutely no signs! Saw the midwife the day before for a sweep and she said baby was high and no signs of her coming. Next morning went to the bank, did the Tesco shop and on the way back from the school run at 3.30 had a few cramps. Got stronger and stronger, never had a show of anything else. Got to the hospital at 6.31 and waters broke on the way in and she was born at 6.34 so all over from first contraction to delivery in 3 hours, my first 2 were both 26 hour labours!!! Hope you have a baby soon ☺

Have to say I agree from what I've read that having loads of signs is no guarantee either! And it is actually probably even MORE disheartening to have loads of signs and no baby

Oh wow!! I'll have some of that please! Haha. Congratulations!!! Saw your thread the other day about being overdue
I had a long labour with my ds but the first part was like what you said really - midwife told me at 39w that he was high and that I'd go overdue, my waters went at 39+3 oh these babies just do what they want I suppose haha.
Really hope I'm one of these ladies who comes back on soon saying "yeah scratch what I said, just had a baby" haha

Going overdue really sucks! Fingers crossed you get your little one soon! The midwife said to me yesterday they really can't tell when babies are coming either and they often take them by surprise. A quick Labour was definitely better than a long drawn out one ☺

Nope. Nada here either, i'm on countdown, if baby doesn't come naturally then 25th is eviction date (csection) desperately hoping he comes on his own asap as I really don't want the section (it would be my third and youngest is only 15 months :O )

I've had a lot of loose bowel movements for the last 24 hours (makes a change from the constipation I was having several weeks ago!), lot of pain in my lower back, tailbone and pelvis, a lot of discharge and tightening across my belly. But I'm pretty sure it's just discomfort because it's not feeling like early labour. If I get to Tuesday that will make me 38+1 and will officially be the longest I have EVER been pregnant.

I honestly thought that as soon as my csection was booked (38 weeks - this coming Monday eek!) That she would try and get out on her own as that would just be typical, but no signs here at all 😂 they really do just get snug and decide to come when they please I think. Not that that is at all helpful when you just want them here.

I hope something starts soon for you x

Thank you ladies it's silly because I'm not even 40w yet - but I have now just about gone over the point where I had my son (by a few hours, haha) and I've got that "WHEN will it happen" feeling! main thing is baby comes safely only thing that matters really.
