Other than the 'show' and contractions did any of you 'know' you were going to go into labour soon?
I am only 35 weeks but for the last 24 hours have felt 'funny'. I feel nauseous and have a pressure down below. Last night I had a fair amount of cramping like period pains. I also feel so incredibly tired.

Nope, I think I was still in denial when I was in labour.

Nope. Similar to LP, I got up out of bed to get ready for work, felt a little trickle (had the first thought of OMG seriously have I just wee'd myself a bit!) just made it to the bathroom and my waters went like a flood!

I had no previous signs, I was lying on the settee all morning at 39+1, I went upstairs to get ready, on the stairs I felt a little gush, then again in the shower & getting dressed. My waters continued to trickle out all through labour. Contractions kicked in 4hours after first trickle of waters.

Yes, my waters broke about 6-8 hours before! Ha, and it was my due date and I knew no daughter of mine would be late, I hate lateness.. In all seriousness I didn't know at the time but when I look back I can see after weeks of managing on a few hours sleep, I had a full night, felt so relaxed, was able to eat for the first time in 8 months without being sick (temporarily). However didn't realise this until after.

Yes but similar to Little Madam I didn't realise until afterwards. With both of mine I had felt so anxious towards the end, fed up and really emotional but I look back now and on each of the days I went into labour I woke up with a totally relaxed attitude of what will be will be and im not gonna mope around any more and get on with things. I had lots of energy and just wanted to be out and about doing something. With my 2 nd I had the urge to walk for miles and it was whilst walking my 1st contractions came.
