questions about signs that mean labor is soon

ill be 36 wks tomorrow. over the last two or three days i have had soooo much more colostrum its ridiculous. just today i have soaked through 2 breast pads and a bra since about 3 this afternoon. ive had a lot more discharge and its a little more runny and mucousy then before and i have noticed a little bit of pink in it, but a very small amount. ive also been getting more intense bh that hurt in my stomach back and legs however they arent regular. could all these things mean that labor is gonna start soon? im so ready everytime i get a bh i look to see what time it is and hope that they will start coming regularly but so far they havent.

Re: questions about signs that mean labor is soon

With my first pregnancy I don't recall any real signs. I just woke up in the middle of the night with a GOD awful pain. I thought I had to go to the bathroom, and tried, but nothing happened. I laid back down and from then on the pains never stopped. But I don't recall anything really happening before that point that made me think it was going to happen soon. Honestly, when I had my first few contractions, I thought it was strange but didn't even really know for sure if that was what was happening. However, everyone is different. My mom said each time before she would go into labor she would have a little bleeding. I never had that, so no signs for me! It could mean that though.

Since my doctor had confirmed that i was basically getting bh contractions all along i did realized they have become a little more frequent then they used to. I used to get them maybe once a week starting at about 32 weeks and now its maybe a few times a day every 2 to 3 days. I think my body is preparing for the real deal which i hope im ready for. Other than that i havent been realizing any other things except the baby feels alot lower now also.

Re: questions about signs that mean labor is soon

Within the week before delivery, my only sign was that I was having some cramping that was period like and in my lower back and I started to slow down a bit. I remember sitting down in the aisle of Target because of the cramping and tiredness. I was active and in my best shape while pregnant, I never slowed down once until that week, but my water was leaking slowly that I hardly realized it and I think I was in early stages of labor.
