-baby not moving as much as usual

When I went in with my son before going to bed I felt fine. I woke up out my sleep with sharp pains, stabbing in my vagina and a ton of pressure. Couldn't sit or stand everything irritated me

Contractions every 5-7 minutes but they didn't hurt at all, just steady. I felt a little nausea, pooped out everything I ate like right when I finished eating it. I knew he was coming, I just sensed it.

I woke up around 6, seriously thought I was hungry, ate, then started getting mild contractions. Got extremely nauseous and puked for the next couple hours and had a bout of diarrhea. Got to the hospital and I was definitely in labor. I didn't have any sharp stabbing pains in my back and my contractions just felt like period cramps. I was in labor for 21 hours and had him exactly on my due date.

I felt normal the whole day then around dinner time I started having contractions every 2 minutes they came out of nowhere but stubborn me wanted to go out to dinner before going to the hospital. But got to the hospital and was at a 3 thats when the contractions were getting intense by 10:30 I felt so much pressure like I had to poo and sure enough I was at a 10 and ready to push. Good luck to you (:

Sounds like it could be soon! Looking back (I had my baby last night) I had a few "signs".

For some reason, when I woke up I was really sappy to my boyfriend lol. I was all " I am so in love with you OMG I love you no really" and he was half asleep lol.

Went to the doctor and nothing seemed to have changed. But I had, after being nauseous for a lot of the pregnancy, had a couple weeks where I couldn't stop eating, I was oddly nauseous for 3 or 4 days before going into labor. It was odd. Then suddenly, BAM BAM BAM, it was mucus plug, bloody show, water breaking lol
