    Default Am I close?!

    Just a quick question, has anyone found that they tend to sleep WAY more than usual before labour? This morning I slept in until 12, and for me thats weird this has happend 2 days in a row... someone tell me that this means labour is almost here

    Sorry Kirsty, I don't know. But if it makes you feel any better, I slept in a lot this morning too! Reckon I'll have an arvo nap as well as I'm still tired!

    Got my fingers crossed for you!

    Cant say ive heard it is..and if it is then i must be REALLY close coz i sleep til 12 - 1pm almost every day unless i have something on..
    Far as i know the only almost definate signs of pending labour are the mucous plug coming away, waters breaking, contractions, all those physical things..

    Tiredness is just a symptom of pregnancy..not labour..sadly

    Hmmm, not as far as I know. However, bubs tend to go a bit quieter before labour (mine have anyway ) - so maybe this is why you are sleeping more cos bubs is not waking you kicking and punching?

    You just never know, everyone is different

    Yes, I have read that it can be...Something to do with your body preparing for the *energetic* experience to come. I slept a lot also for about 4 days before I went into labour...
    Having said that though - I was 8 days over due and I cant be sure if it was physiological or I was just damned tired! lol

    Good luck either way...and enjoy the sleep while you can!
