  • it might be your body getting ready for labor since you're 'done' now. just make sure you don't get dehydrated....drink lots of water. gl

  • thats a sign of labor soon to come but 38 weeks is kind of early...most babies are late, esp first ones.....just make sure you stay hydrated!! i think it sounds like your body is getting ready tho : )

  • "most" babies are not late lol Babies come when they are ready. What you are experiencing could be a sign you are getting ready for labor. 38 wks is not too early.
