I went into labour at 30 weeks + 3 days. A bit early for my liking but they are really great and only spent 4 weeks in special care nursery. Plus side was - no stretch marks!!

I didn't go into labour at all! I had a planned caesarean at 39 weeks and had no Braxton Hicks or contractions by then so heaven knows when my two would have made an appearance without intervention.

I went into labour at 36 weeks to the day, but had a c-section as the babies were transverse and breech (no chance of them coming out naturally!)

Was induced at spot on 36 weeks due to pre-eclampsia but it didn't work so I never actually got into proper labour and had an emergency c-section.  Never a sniff of Braxton Hicks either so there's no knowing when they would have made an appearance left to their own devices.  Still, with a combined weight of over 14lb, I'm glad they came when they did.  :)

Went into hospital at 35+3. Had 'em at 35+4. As I said on your other thread, my labour was silent up until 6cm so watch out for other tell tale signs. In my case these were: started being sick again for a week before hand and had increasingly massive (and I do mean MASSIVE) amounts of snotty-like discharge (sorry if TMI!). Had a tiny streak of blood in it the morning of 35+3 which is why I rang the hospital.

Had noticeable Braxton Hicks from very early on. Started having contractions at 23 weeks (scary) was admitted 5 times in all to be given drugs to stop the contractions. Had a quiet week (except one of my dogs started sitting in front of me, just staring at me?!) then waters broke at 32 weeks +3. Girls born naturally, but with high forceps as had a prolapsed cord and had to be delivered quickly at the end.
Girls spent 1 week in Special care, then a further 3 weeks in Post Natal, until feeding was established.

My waters went at 36+6, nothing happened for 24 hours so they induced me. I had a show about a week before and bad lower backache for a day before my waters went. They broke in the middle of the night, luckily i rolled out of bed just in time.

Hiya

I was induced at 38 weeks although I'm sure they would of stayed in there right until the end if they had of left me. I had an amazing natural delivery.

Hope everything goes well.

i was due to be induced at 37+4 anyway! Glad I had them when I did cos I was HUGE!!! and couldn't do anything!

Good luck!
