I went into labour during the night for DD1, so I felt the same as you each day I woke up with DD2. I went six days over with her and every morning I'd wake up all depressed.

But I actually went into labour with her at about lunch time and had her at night original.gif

I know that feeling well... My first 2 were evening/night labours, every night with #3 I expected to go into labour. At 40+10 I was induced.

Number 4 was headed for induction, but went into labour spontaneously at 41+12 during the day.  Started with heavier discharge in the morning and some really light, irregular contractions about 11am so went out for lunch for family birthday... Labour set in as we arrived home at 3pm, baby arrived at 7pm.  Felt quite odd to be labouring in the daytime.

Good luck, I hope your labour is imminent and you meet your baby soon!

I've only had one natural start to labour and the very first contraction woke me at 1.20am, she was born at around 8am.

My four labours have all been during the day.

My first was the only one that was spontaneous, got out of bed at 11am-ish and realised my waters had broken. Was shocked as my due date was still 2 weeks away. Contractions started properly somewhere between 12noon and 1pm. Dd was born at around 4pm that day.

Other labours have all been induced in the morning, bubs born by late morning/early afternoon.

I started having irregular contractions at 2am, then had a show at 8am. Then everything stopped, apart from a constant backache.  At 4pm my water broke, contractions started immediately and ds was born at 2.13am. DS2 was a CS.

First labour was induced - ARM at 2 pm, drip went up at 4 pm, bub born at 6:30 pm.

Second labour had ten days of regularly irregular Braxton-Hicks, but no dilation. Was woken by first contraction at 12:15 am (woke up shouting 'ow ow ow' followed by hitting DH madly and yelling 'get up get up!'. Quite comical in retrospect). Had 90 min of contractions every 20 min, but not terribly painful once standing. Called hospital only because of my rapid labour with my first and was surprised when they told me to come in. Still only having contraction 20 min apart when we went in at 2:45 and was so convinced it wasn't really labour I told DH to leave everything in the car (so no camera when DS2 was born!). Was very surprised to be told I was 8 cm and this baby was being born! Got stuck a bit in second stage due to big posterior baby but he was born at 5:15 am, and my contractions only went from 1 in 20 to 1 in 5 when I started to push (and he was born 20 min later!).

DD1 -I  didn't really experience any labour pains , she was born via emergency c-section.

DS - I went into labour early hours of morning.
DD2 -I  went into labour after having waters broken about 1:30pm in afternoon.

Out of  the 4 births I've already had, the only one that DIDN'T start at night, was the one who was overdue and the midwife accidentally broke my waters during an exam.  So she was probably ready to come along that night anyway.
I am now due anyday with #5 and will be in shock if I labour during the day, so I always wake up in the morning thinking another day gone that it hasn't happened  lol
