No signs of labor at 39 weeks?

I am just about 39 weeks and have had absolutely NO signs of impending labor. I have maybe a contraction every day or two or three! I've never really had BH throughout the pregnancy. I thought I lost a bit of my plug a week and a half ago, but it was very little, and nothing since. Has anyone else had no symptoms of pre-labor and just went into labor or am I destined to go overdue?!?

Just wanted to add that I know going overdue isn't a bad thing, and I'm more curious than anything if I could wake up one morning in labor, or if I'm more likely to have warning signs first. My first DD was an emerg c-section at 31 weeks, so I'm a first timer regarding this stuff!

Re: No signs of labor at 39 weeks?

for me.. i went to 41 weeks with ds1 and had not ONE sign of labor.. i was induced though and they were trying everything to dialate me for that last week and nothing worked until they broke my water. with my twins i started having preterm contraction at 30 weeks though lol. and with ds1 i lost my mucus plug at least a week before i was induced.. but yet, nothing happened

It's normal. Alot of women show no signs and then, BOOM, Baby! I hardly ever have signs until labor starts. The only time I had signs was with my third and I didn't have those until 2 days before actual labor began.

I had no signs of labor even at 42 weeks. I ended up being induced. And I know my dates weren't wrong- we had an u/s early on that showed DS at 10 weeks exactly, and when he was born, he had that look that over due babies have, plus all that peeling skin. So who knows. I guess he just liked it in there.

Re: No signs of labor at 39 weeks?

No signs really with either of my three..I mean looking back afterward I realize that my bowels always move,I eat a ton the night before..Little things like that but no serious contractions.

Third baby at 41 weeks I started BH and at 42 had a very (VERY) fast labor.

It will be interesting to me to see what happens this time around.
