    me! i had absollutely nothing!

    no emptying of stomach, no nesting, nothing. . . i did have a few contractions the week leading up but nothing serious, i had 2 hours worth once but during the whole 2 horus i had people ringing up and texting me and i think my annoyance at their calls stopped it lol too much of a coincidence that when i was left on my own and had contractions and relaxed that was when they continued into labour! everytime before that i got interupted during relaxing, got really peed off and they stopped lol

    but yeah to cut a long story short i had absolutely nothing to suggest that i was about to go into labour apart from those few cntractions - we are seriously not talking about many like 5 in 3 hours two or three times . . . these happened a week before a did go in labour . . . oh and no increase in cm, no show, no waters breaking, no change in mood, no change in appetite, no headaches no feeling sof pushing down (although turned out he as too big and that was why)

    I can't speak for myself but when I was moaning to my friend from antenatal class the the other day (who had her baby two weeks early!) that mine was showing no signs of arriving, she said she didn't get any signs whatsoever. Her waters broke and that was it. Then yesterday I happened to see another lady from my antenatal class at the birthing centre, as I'd gone in for my 40 week check-up and membrane sweep - this other lady had literally had her (gorgeous!) baby the day before (was lovely as her husband invited us in to see them as he remembered us from the partners class) and she said she had also had no signs whatsoever.

    I was convinced that nothing at all was happening with my baby (although note - it still isn't here!) BUT..... when I had my appointment yesterday it transpired that baby is now pretty much engaged, I'm 1cm dilated and the cervix is reasonably soft, so midwife was quite pleased as she says that is pretty good for a first baby, as they generally don't arrive 'til 41 weeks. In addition, I discovered that I had been having tightenings, but hadn't noticed them. Was a bit embarrassing as was hooked up to a monitor and they showed up on there - it wasn't exactly that I felt nothing, was just I thought it was to do with baby moving and poking her bum out or something! And then apparently yesterday I my uterus was tightening when the midwife touched it to examine me as she said 'ah, you're getting a tightening now, I'll just leave it a minute and then examine you'. I really, honestly, still did not notice! I am assuming when I get proper contractions I will notice them!

    Oh and there's absolutely no chance of me 'nesting'. I can't see the point of e.g. washing baby clothes milions of times, etc. :)

    No signs with either of my first two pregnancies. I woke up around 4am with contractions....no previous signs. Lost my plug and water broke AFTER I was already in labor. And nesting isn't necessarily a sign of labor.....it can happen at any time.

    I had nothing either. The night before I saw my doctor my baby kicked a little harder than usual. Then saw my ob the next day and I was 5 cm dilated. She said, "why haven't you rung me before this appoinment?" I replied "you told me to ring when my waters broke!" so she had to pull my plug and break my waters for me. 3/4 hours later I was 10th dilated! It was only 2 hours after she broke my waters did I begin to feel contractions.

    (right now you're prob thinking she has a great pain threshold but I fainted when I slipped in the shower a year earlier because of the pain. So I guess it was a weird labour for me. However at 10cm I needed every drug in the place!
