I will be 38 weeks tomorrow, and last week I started pre-labor and was dilated to 1 cm and my cervix was soft. Well I cannot sleep anymore due to horrible back pain (which is where the labor is) and if i do sleep i sleep until 11am which is abnormal for me. Anyways today I have had tons of energy plus having pressure in my bottom and horrible back pain, I went on a walk with my husband (which i havent done in a long time), I made lunch, did the dishes and I vaccumed the kitchen and bathroom and mopped the floors on my hands and knees. My back is hurting now along with the same pressure, but Now i want to go clean our room? Is labor starting soon BTW its a full moon tonight?

I have heard women can get an extra burst of energy just before labor starts. So it may very well be... Try to save some of it though, you will need every ounce :)

That burst of energy and you using it cleaning is called nesting. You 'll be in labor soon.
