  • I have never heard of the belly button hurting means labor. and as far as your boobs hurting....they are more then likely getting ready, producing milk for the first few days. And the cramps try laying down it could be braxton hick

  • Probably not, Realistically you will probably be pregnant for at least another month.

  • 37 weeks is full term, you have still some time to go. You could be of course cause it can happen at any amount of weeks but highly unlike with what you describe.

  • Depending where you live, you are full term. Here in Texas 36 weeks is considered full term so if you go into labor they probably won't stop it. But you are preparing for birth so you can expect the cramping and the sore breasts. It's all part of the process.
