    Hello all,

    This is kinda a question for mums already or mums who have just given birth.

    I have been wondering whether there are early signs of labour.

    I dont mean losing your plug, or waters breaking etc kinda mean like...do you get cronic back ache before hand, or feel sick etc

    Just interested.

    Thanks

    i just started with mild back ache and it slowly got worse and worse over the couse of about 18 hours. Then pains going up inside. Didn't really have a show and i have no idea when my waters broke, I must of been in the bath.

    Come on moms, tell us more! This is like the symptom potting thread back from the TTC forum - we full-termers want to hear all the intimate details!

    What about energy levels the day before? Tired? Nesting?
    What about emotionally?
    Appetite? Cravings?

    Yep thanks for asking....my birth partner keeps saying to let her know if I get any "feelings" over xmas so she can lay off the sherry lol and I keep saying to her that I don't think it really happens like that!!!
     
  16. Throwing up!! Problem is this time I have hyperemesis so I throw up all the time anyway...not quite sure how I will know its the "labour is starting" throw up....
    Ive never had any other signs or signals, no change in anything else...everything always starts after the throwing up.

    i think i had an energy boost now i think about it. I woke up in labour and with my waters broken so there was nothing that made me think this is it, apart from it being it! If that makes any sense. Nothing else springs to mind, sorry i can't be more help!
