Im not asking about me right now, i am just wondering what prelabour was like for others.
Im sitting here and bored lol.
Im 37w this Friday. With DD i just went into spontanious labour, with my waters breaking at 39weeks, i didnt have any indication (apart from a small mucus plus - in hindsight 48hrs before waters breaking)
Are there things you noticed that happened to you before you went into labour? More braxtons? Any other symptoms.

Cant believe your 37 weeks already?!?! Where did that time go.. maybe its gone slow for you though??
How very exciting.
With DD I had pre labour for about a week and a half before hand.
My braxton hicks which I would get occasionally began to appear more frequently and were stronger. In the week and a half prior to real labour, Id have many a night where contractions (or braxton tightenings) would happen regularly every 10mins down to every 5 mins then fizzle out. This would happen for about 4-6 hours at a time.
So on the day I did actually go into labour, I didn't know.. and just thought it was braxtons playing tricks on me again... until I got to hospital and was 6cm. My waters never broke.
Other than that, no other indications.
Hope all goes well!
