Did you feel different/shitty beforehand? I remember people saying that last time I was pregnant, but I was induced with DS.
I’ve been feeling exceptionally shitty this week, which I attributed to the stress of telling XH I’m pregnant, but by now I feel like I should be feeling better if it was that. It could also just be being 34w pregnant and working a lot with a stressful job and a 6yo.
I got my bp checked at work and it was high for me lately but still normal. I also have an appointment already scheduled for Monday, and don’t really have any specific symptoms other than general shittiness.
With #1 we did a big garage sale the day before so I was way tired from the week of setting up before and working it. I woke up MOTN with contractions.
With #2 I was having a normal day. Took my daughter to her library class, walked around downtown, had lunch out. By afternoon contractions started. I ate some dinner, got my daughter to bed, and DH and I headed to the hospital after in laws made it to our house. DD2 was born just under 1.5 hours later. I felt good most of the day.
I'm currently 34w6d with #3 and feel very pregnant. By feel I can't imagine having 5 weeks left but no real reason to think this one will come early.

Currently not pregnant but I went into spontaneous labour with DS at 40w3d and I don’t think I had any symptoms either? My water broke in the middle of the night and then my contractions followed immediately after. I felt some what I thought were contractions the night before but that’s it.
I was in super nesting mode the day before though, finally packed my overnight bag, had DH do all the yard work, cleaned the entire house lol.
Nope not at all. Didn’t really feel anything at all before it started. With DS I had a midwife appointment earlier in the day and since I was 41+3 we discussed and arranged for an induction in a few days. A few hours later I got period like cramps and that was the start of it.
This time with DD I just woke up in the middle of the night with period like cramps. Then contractions that disappeared and then reappeared next day. And then quickly escalated and ended with an accidental home birth.
I did feel really crappy the last week but that was due to a cold (DH and DS gad it too) and if anything it was getting better by the time I went into labour.

I had three days or early or prodromal labour before DD was born. It was fairly obvious. I’m half expecting this baby to show up today considering how shit my sleep was last night (also Friday the 13th with a full harvest moon) but my stretch and sweep yesterday and today’s pressure point massage seem to have gotten us nowhere.

I was induced with DS, but went into labor with DD before a RCS. Looking back, I totally felt like shit more than I had prior, but I didnt think so at the time. Pregnancy was much harder with DD because they're so close in age, so I attributed it to general pregnancy shittiness.
