labor coming soon? adult content

I am 38 weeks & 4 days. Been dilating and all that for the past 2 weeks.
I have been having frequent braxton hicks all week and they were getting pretty uncomfortable last night. Now today I have, not diarrhea, but frequent softer BM's (I usually only poop once a week) along with the fact that all week I've slept 'til atleast 1pm with atleast 1 nap during the day and today i got up at 0830 and didn't even want to go back to bed and I've been cleaning an doing laundry like a mad woman. Could these all be signs labor is fast approaching?

  • Could be. Try doing some squats, taking a long walk, or having sex. That's what helped put me into labor!

  • You are getting closer - could be today, and could be 3 more weeks!! :D

    I had early labor pains for about 3 weeks before it was the real thing! Good luck.
