ok so i whent tosee my MW the other week and she told me to be aware for any signs of labour never told me any of them etc just said be aware of them other than the obvious ones water break and loss of plug what else would we say are classics signs labour is on the way??
im sick of looking on google lol googling signs of labour and traling all differant sites so thought id ask you ladies and get all the info in one place lol.
So other than waters going and loss of plug what are other signs labour is round the corner?
Loose stools can be a sign of labor. Real contractions (they feel like menstrual cramps) and back labor pains (it feels like you're on your monthly in your back). Other than the loss of plug and the waters breaking I don't know any others lol. You can also lose your plug and not have any labor at all. I lost mine at my 37 weeks mark and didn't go into labor at all. Hope this helps!
You can have a clear out (or go the opposite way and suffer constipation), mucus plug comes away, period pains that keep coming and going, hind waters break, main waters break, nesting, loss of appetite, back pain - pretty much what hte other ladies have said
I have a book which says that when they ask new mothers what things they did/felt before labour there were two signs which they didn't realise were signs of labour. One of them is feeling quite sick (apparently also linked to a shorter labour) and the other is a desire to be on all fours. This isn't making excuses to get on all fours because you think it will help etc. but just having a strong desire to hand clean a carpet, for example, with no real reasoning behind it.
