How much movement will the baby make during early labour?

I am 39 weeks and keep getting a low stomach cramp although it is not a "wave" more of a constant ache. I have also been getting small amounts of "show" for several days.

The baby is still moving around although not as violently as normal - it has been quite a wriggler!

To what extent will it move if things are starting or do you think it is just wishful thinking on my part??

Depends on the baby - first of mine was still kicking with his head in the birth canal (!). The midwife was very surprised...

Second went quiet a day before she was born, as if she was saving her energy.

Could the 'constant ache' be pressure from your baby getting into the best position for birth?
Mine are 22 months and 4 months, and I have a vague memory of quite a dull pressure low down and onto my back
