Sweetz- actually, I felt great the day prior to my labor. So good that I walked 4 miles and did 2 pregnancy exercise videos- maybe that helped!! I awoke around 5:30 with lots of mucus plug looking stuff- which I had been seeing on and off over the last week or so. I woke up due to shooting v____al pains and had no idea they were contractions. I cleaned up around the house and we went to he hospital at around 8am, just to make sure everything was ok-- hospital is only 1 mile away. Sooo, no, I had no sure signs ahead of time that I was going into labor. Thank you all for wishing me well- it's so exciting to have her laying here sleeping calmly on my belly :o)

I know this is a response to a question asked long time ago but, thought it would be helpful to new readers. The reason c-sections are performed sometimes before week 42 depends on your placenta's condition. Usually after 41 weeks, in some cases, the placenta might already start to deteriorate. This process will put your baby's well being at risk. The chances of acc_mulating meconium, for example, becomes higher. Your placenta no longer offers an optimum environment for your baby. And as a mother I ask, who would put their baby's life at risk?
