    Hello,

    I just wondered if there was a pattern in what people were doing when they went into labour or there waters broke/contractions started etc, I get the impression being active really helps as this is how my niggles always start much more than when i am being a lazy moo ....

    Desperate times calls for desperate measures :rofl:

    I had been to my ex's graduation day and then went for my sweep at the hospital. Got home and my friend came round and it all kicked off!

    With my first I had a busy day cleaning as i knew i was being induced the next day (i was around 40 weeks) had a bath and went to bed about 10pm and my contractions started within about 10 mins, with my second it was mid-morning time and i was pegging out the washing when my first noticable contractions started that happened on my due date xxx

    I was 2 weeks overdue and due to be induced on the Thursday. On the Tuesday night I put the TV on and watched Richard Hammond on BBC iPlayer and Pop my waters went on the bed! There was no mistaking it .... LO wasnt born until the Thursday anyway in the end.

    Before all that because I was so overdue I was doing everything imaginable (and unimaginable!) to get things going ...

    I was just pottering around the house and on BnB lol when I had mild cramps then I had a bath and that was it !!!! It didn't step up a gear it literally went into overdrive !!!!

    Before I got the mild pains I had been measuring the floor at our new house maybe that was it !

    Get the tape measure out lol

    My mum fell out a car door?


    Lol

    Wouldn't recommend it, people in my family tend to fall and go into labour. My sister fell off a tramploline and my friend down the stairs, both their waters broke

    I'm sure its because of my last labour starting whilst pegging out the washing i'm sooo obsessed with keeping on finding stuff to wash now! I keep thinking that thats where its going to happen again :dohh: but after reading this thread reckon i'm gonna just chill out as it seems it doesnt really make any difference what your doing! xxx
