Hi everyone! I 37 weeks pregnant as of tomorrow. I wanted to know if anybody has ever gone into active labor without the usual signs or symptoms of pre labor? I have had a great pregnancy, very healthy no problems at all. So good that I feel like i could continue to be pregnant forever lol. I know that i am not past due and have nothing to worry aout but i was just curious what i should be looking out for. I have not even experienced a single braxton hicks contraction my entire pregnancy. My midwife does not do internal exams for fear of infection so i have no clue if i am dilated or effaced at all. I am just wondering if i could be in early labor without realizing it, like already 1 or 2 cm dilated or something. I am just apprehensive, i have no idea when this is going to all go down seeing that i have had no warning signs whatsoever. Any comments or advice?

With my first I didn't dialate or anything until the day I had him. I was 41 weeks and 5 days. I lost my plug at 6:45 am and started having contractions that were 3 minutes apart. I had him at 6:49pm. With my other 2 I had contractions for days and was dialated for at least 2 weeks.
