i will let you know for myself when i was in labour (also a lot more of my friends than i would have thought!) the first sign was what felt like MAJOR constipation. thats all i went to the unit for was just to get something to relieve it this started at 7.30am when i woke up with it went to unit at 9pm (couldnt stand it any longer!) turned out at 10.15pm when i was given an internal just to try & get the process going while i was there as i was overdue & when she went to do the sweep etc i was 7 cm dilated!! surprised everyone (a lot of running around was done by everyone after that!) out of it all im glad that i hadn't been in hospital all that time, try stay at home, its much more relaxing!
good luck everyone!
