  • Well i went straight from that sort of thing into active labor. like i was like that for about 12 hours, then started active labor, and 8 hours later, i had my son.

    but i know some women experience what you are describing for weeks before active labor begins. it can be really frustrating that you can't tell for sure if you are about to go into active labor, or if you still have a few weeks.

    gl!!! =)

  • oh, i didn't really answer your question. i do not think it is labor, but i do think that your body is getting ready :)
