  • It means your body is getting ready for labor, it can go on for months but because your so far along you won't have to deal with it that long. GL

  • Its pretty much normal to have contractions towards the end of pregnancy. They can be painful or not, but its your body preparing for labor. The more work it does now slowly, over time, the less it has to do when you are in labor
