What are signs, other than the usual listed ones, that labor is about to start?

Ive heard the usual, dropping/lightening, braxton-hicks, loss of mucous plug, nesting, water breaking... But are there any other signs? Like real signs that people don't usually like to talk about? With my first I was so excited at first contraction, I forgot to pay attention to other things that were happening, and with this one, my body has been completely different, so Im just all around confused.

  • Honestly i didn't notice any weird signs or anything. My daughter was 2 days overdue and i lost my mucus plug at 5am (which didn't happen with my son) and i woke up at 7am in labor. I was actually concentrating really hard with her too, just to see if i could find another way to know she was coming but no such luck. Sorry i know it doesn't help but you can never really tell when you are going to go into labor.

  • I just tought of one but i don't know how unusual it is. The last 2 days i was pregnant with my daughter i was soooo sick i actually missed the toilet (sorry tmi) but i had morning sickness with her the whole pregnancy and never missed except the last 2 days. Maybe that is a sign. Good luck.
