I was 37 weeks Wednesday with baby number 3 and had the show. With the other 2 I started couple of days later so today when I started with mild contractions I thought here we go.... 3 hours later they disappeared and now getting the odd twinge!! Think this little miss likes playing games!! ha

There are no set rules, with my eldest I didn't have my show until 4hrs after starting contractions, with my youngest I had my show before entering slow labour which lasted 10days.
Keep yourself busy, hopefully you won't be waiting too long. X

With my 3rd I had a show and contrations on and off for about 2 weeks ended up getting induced at 39.6 due to having no waters. A lot of people told me that 3rd babies and labour are very unpredictable and in my case it was true. Good luck, I hope that you get to meet your little baby soon x

Funny you say that, I seen the midwife yesterday and she said the same that baby number 3 you tend to get a lot of niggles!!! But then that can mean being a bit quicker once in established labour. Went for a walk yesterday and had terrible back pain and some tightenings and then once home stopped. Midwife said fully engaged and head really low. With having the other 2 to think about just feel really anxious with xmas a week away. Other 2 were early, 37 wks and 38 wks so was hoping this one the same but she got other plans!! ha xx
