  • Well as any mother will tell you, not every pregnancy is the same. Since they are all different your little one may be coming sooner than you think. 38 week is a good gestation to give birth. I would chalk it up to braxton hicks. I'm sorry you're not feeling well.

  • Either braxton hicks or early labor. It is normal to start and stop labor a few times before things get really serious the more babies you have. I did that with #3 too and went in for false labor a few times. I would finish packing your bags and last minute things, but then get some serious rest untill things get going again just in case.
