How did you know you were going into labour? What were your first signs?

I felt crabby and short tempered all throughout the day and just felt not 100%. I didn’t feel ill but just didn’t feel right. And I remember my mum being on the phone and the whole time she was talking I just didn’t have the energy or concentration to listen to her. Then later on that night the pains started in my back and I knew it was different to Braxton Hicks and it didn’t feel like period pains at all. I measured the contractions on an app and the pains got progressively stronger and more painful. Not everyone’s experience is the same but that’s what happened for me. Hope this helps!
