I didn't. It was a totally normal day, I felt normal (well, normal for being almost 40 weeks pregnant during almost record-breaking heat in the middle of July, lol), had no idea labor was impending, and I woke up at midnight with contractions and bloody show.

For me it's been just over a week I haven't felt right. Extra tired, extra hungry, my cats have all been up my ass, all 4 of them. My guy still moves though.

As for my other kids though, my first was a few days early and I had no idea I was about to go into labor, not til my water broke in my sleep! My 2nd was 2 weeks late and I was induced.

I did. I had a weird back ache the day before and just had a feeling. Then I woke up early in the morning feeling kind of sick and like my hips were spreading. I started to feel crampy and got up to pee a few hours later. At that point my mucous plug liquefied and came out like my water was breaking and I started contracting.

All the day before I felt better than I had the whole pregancy, lol. Great appetite, lots of energy, and a drive to get things done in the baby's room. 1 am that night, my water broke.

My first I was more tired the day before. But nothing I thought was not pregnancy related and heck it could have just been that. My third I thought I was getting sick. I slept pretty much all day the day before.

My third I had everything under the sun for 5-8 weeks. The day before I got a burst of energy and got all the laundry done. Around 4:30 I started to get contractions every 20 mins that never got stronger or closer together till midnight. I also had the worst nausea and heartburn. But it could have been from all the walking up and down the stairs that I over did it. At midnight it all stopped and got three hours of sleep. Woke up to strong contractions.

With all of them I just had a feeling the day before. I knew they would be here the next day.

First one I felt pretty normal, second labor I had back cramps, then that night I wanted to snuggle with my oldest all night long. I had this tremendous feeling that was the last night she was going to be my only child.. sure enough at 330 am I went into labor
