Signs Of Labor (aside from the obvious!) PIOG

I was browsing another website the other day, and there was a post about signs of labor that women experience aside from the typical- like your water breaking, lightening, contractions, etc. 

For example, one woman stated that her husband could accurately predict the birth of their children within 24hrs because she turned into a raving bitch out of the blue (let me tell you - THIS "sign" would definitely NOT be an indication to my poor DH!). Another woman said that she anti-nested the whole day before she went into labor that night. 

Anyways, that got me thinking. I have heard a lot of women say "I just knew", even without your typical symptoms. What are "signs" that you or someone you know may have experienced and swears indicates labor?

I kept trying to kick Dh out of the kitchen cause all of a sudden I wanted to cook. but no dice he will not let me cook if he is home less than an hour later I started having regular contractions and went to the hospital I had my baby boy at 11:19 that night

I always have to poop lol!! I get so backed up during pregnancy but labor clears me out. With all three pregnancies I had awful Braxton hicks from very early on so I would never know if it was early labour from that. But once I poop I know it's time to have a baby! *blushes*

I don't have any--but my friend had back pains she kept complaining about (back labor, but still!!).
My mom cooked a whole lasagna dinner--from scratch before she went into labor with me.

With my first baby I went through clothes and cleaned the nursery every day, so that wouldn't have helped any. This time, I am 4wks out from being due and STILL haven't gotten the nursery put together! LOL
