Anyone had NO signs of labour?


I'm 39 weeks and I just feel I have zero signs of approaching labour...
Very few and mild braxton hicks, no back pain, no pelvic pressure, no mucus plug, no clearout...
It's kind of disheartening. The midwife said baby had dropped when I saw her at 38+1 but I feel like she's moved back up a bit higher.

My waters breaking with my son was pretty out of the blue at 39+3 but I'm sure I'd had SOME sign labour was coming Anyone had this and not gone overdue? I do know that some women have tons of signs that end up lasting weeks so it's no guarantee of anything...but it's still frustrating!

I had nothing with DS#1 until my water broke at 38+5. Nothing but Braxton Hicks with this one.

I hope mine goes like that! I just feel like something should be happening by now and I'm convinced I'm going to go over my due date, which I know isn't the end of the world but can't help feeling downhearted about it

I had absolutely nothing with my son up until the day I was induced at 39+6. I wasn't allowed to go over but I was really hoping I would get there alone but nope, NADA.

This time around, I'm not sure what is a sign and what isn't. I have Ulcerative Colitis which is in active flare so I've been clearing out for days now but is that illness or a sign? Same as I've had back pain radiating into my front for a week now, again, illness or sign? It's so frustrating isn't it, I'm sorry that it's making you feel so disheartened x

I was 5cm dilated before I had any signs of labour at all with my first.

If it helps, I was induced at 39+5 with my daughter and had lost some mucus plug, had braxton hicks for weeks etc but when I went into hospital, there was no way she was coming anytime soon, it took 4 pesscaries and a synconin drip to get things started. I wasn't allowed to go over my due date though so had to be done but I think I definitely would have went over if I had been left to go myself.

Thanks ladies...I'm hoping it doesn't mean too much either way. I'm really impatient for baby to come now! Now I feel like she's back up in my ribs after having dropped last week...also got bad heartburn again... sigh.

Thank you, mine too! I know I need to remember that this is the last bit now and all that matters is that baby gets here safely.
But I think we all get impatient right at the end! I read a thing on another forum in my crazy googling yesterday (haha) where someone said, imagine you'd booked your wedding day and you had that date fixed in your mind for 9 months and were counting down to that day and then at the last minute right when you were super excited, someone told you it was postponed for up to two weeks, you'd be pissed. Haha. So true.
