Signs that baby is on the way

Thinking back, did any of you suddenly realise that you had other signs that baby was on the way?

I'm not talking about breaking waters, Braxton Hicks, etc but maybe more subtle stuff that now you think about it, were good signs to look out for?

Reason I'm wondering is funny aches and pains I'm getting all of a sudden, lots of movement and the distinct feeling she's about to fall out of me (sounds gross I know) when I get up in the night Embarassed

Be really interested to hear of any 'weird' feelings the rest of you had before your little ones arrived Thumbs Up

I was running around like a headless chicken hun, was doing about 6 jobs at once. DF thought i had gone mad, he couldn't keep up with me. I even went for a 6mile walk pushing lolly in the buggy the day before he was born. I did it in 2hrs! LOL Oh and i painted my toenails the night before because i felt like it was time and i had to be presentable! LOL, think it must have been temporary insanity? or maybe not? Unsure Confused Cuckoo Xx

With Charlotte nothing LOL, I started washing walls and cleaning like a nutter the day I was being induced, but I'm not sure that was because I knew I was coming out of the hospital with a baby more than anything.

George, well i was cleaning for 2 weeks straight and the day I had him, I got the bus into the town centre with Charlotte and went upto Boots to get my Maternity towels because i became concious I was 4 days over and hadn't bought any yet..Boots had them on BOGOF LOL, the lady behind the counter asked if I had long to wait before baby came and I just replied i was 4 days over and hopefully anytime...I decided to walk home, then take out the dog for a huge walk on the playing fields. i then put Charlotte down for a nap and had a pain, so got my head down for a couple of hours...before 10 in the evening I'd had him LOL.

I was induced so didnt have any signs.

Asked my friend and she said her babies both went really quiet and didnt move as much (saving their energy she said for her LONG labours)
