so are there any symptoms for birth

I was just wondering. I have approximately 6 weeks left and I wanted to know if there were any so-called symptoms weeks before you actually give birth? i'm taking it easy lately and resting as much as possible to get ready for when she arrives. I go to the doctor on Thursday to get an idea of how big she is and what position she's in! I can't wait! My mom came 3 weeks early with me, but does that necessarily mean i will too? Thanks!

  • I'm 34 weeks right now and the baby's head is low...I feel a lot of pressure down there. I get braxton hick contractions here and there. The only symptoms that would tell you you're in labor is if the contractions are regular and the intensity increases or if your water breaks. I'm waiting for some signs too...but I don't want to give birth too early!
