    When you watch any of the soaps, how come they all just know that they are in labour??

    No weeks of symptom spotting - have I lost my plug? Are these just BH or proper contractions? I'm getting back ache and cramps - what does it mean??

    NO - they just double over one day with a massive grunt as full on contractions start or their waters break, they shout "the baby's coming" then they get whisked to hospital and half an hour later the baby is in their arms and the whole street/square/village is there to visit!!!!

    I mean - come on!!!!!!!!

    am hoping for a soap-style birth myself :)
    as well as a completely uncomplicated pregnancy which goes by freakishly fast, i like the idea of my waters breaking all of a sudden, then moaning through maybe three or four contractions before yelling for all of five minutes and the baby is out :D :D
