  • its a prelabor sign but it doesnt mean you will be in labor soon ...

  • It is a sign of pre-labor which occurs anytime during 2-4 weeks before delivery. Not a sign of active labor though, sorry :-(

    Do you have a copy of "What to Expect When You're Expecting" ? It has a whole column of pre-labor vs. labor symptoms.

  • it CAN be, but it doesnt mean that it is! i had a few of the early labor signs but i still was 41 weeks before i had the baby. contractions that get closer together and more painful is the real sign of active labor, just relax and enjoy ur last few weeks of being baby-free and able to sleep and do what u want
