Hi there,hope all is well.

* did u have any clues u were going to go into labour that day

No i went for my 36 week check up they even put me on a monitor to check babys movements as i hadnt felt him much for a few days and there were no signs of labour at all.

* were u having contrations and didnt realise?
No i felt really good with no pains at all

* did your mood change

I was on a bit of a high that day i remember feeling very relaxed and stress free Shrug

* did you have the nesting thing?
YES before my appointment 8:45am i had done every bit of housework even all my washing was up to date and i had prepared my dinner for that evening to.

* did you ohysically feel different?

I did feel heavier as if i was walking with a bowling ball between my legs it was a bit uncomfortable but i was generaly ok.I also felt like i was constantly trickling not alot but enough to wear a liner.I later got told it was my waters but being a bit nieve and early i thought it was just my bladder LOL.

Anyways good luck and let us know how you get on.
