Does this sound like labor may be soon?

I've had increasingly painful BH, sometimes I get tears in my eyes from them. I'm having menstral like cramps and also cramps like i am gunna have diarrhea, and ive been having more frequent soft BMs. Sharp pains and pressure on my 'crotch' area, and backaches for the first time this pregnancy. Does it sound like labor may be soon? Not sure if I'm dilated or effaced, my dr hasn't checked, but I am considered full term.

  • I would call if you think you are close, but make sure to write down the time between and how long each bh lasts. This may be your body getting ready... congrats mommy!

  • It may be false contractions. But if its the real deal then they won't go away. It took me until one minute apart to say it was real labor lol. I had had false contractions for 20 weeks. Wasn't about to go to the hospital and not be coming back with a baby!
