I'm 38 weeks & 6 days pregnant.

I lost my mucus plug just over a week ago.

Last night I have really struggled with a sore back, hips and pelvis.

I haven't been able to sleep all night, and ended up cleaning my kitchen at 6.30am.

I'm am suddenly starving hungry and nothing is satisfying my hunger at this silly time of the morning!

Does any of this sound like labour is on its way?!

Oh and I keep getting uncomfortable and slightly painful sharp shooting pains going up my bump.

Well nothing has happened since last night! My back is still pretty sore and my pelvis/groin is very sore!

Can someone clarify this for me.....at my last midwife apt on tues, she said I was 1/5th engaged, I thought this meant only a little engaged but up

Which is it? And if it is almost fully engaged is that a sign labour is near or does it not really make a difference?
