Being optimistic? Could this be labor???

Ok so this is my second go at this whole labor thing but quite frankly my body didn't know what it was doing last time, never got proper contractions even after drugs etc, longest contractions were -30secs even at pushing stage, 46 hour labor and csection.
So although I've done it before I'm still clueless!! Lol
This time I'm down for a csection if I go to due date so I may be being optimistic/hopeful....
Been doing evening orimrose oil and starflower oil for about 6 days now, orally and vaginally.
Today hubby had day off so we have done all the baby prep, 7 hours hoovering, washing organising etc.
so now I don't think these are contractions but I'm not sure, like I said mine were never very strong last time, it feels like baby is going mad, I can feel he is moving loads everywhere but also feel like pressure in my vagina? Tmi?? Sorry? Kind of like the end of an orgasm sometimes??? Ok that's DEFINATELY tmi but I am hoping this might mean something?? Am I just clutching at straws???

Sounds to me like your baby has 'engaged' a bit more - it's head is further down in your pelvis - like it's getting into position!

That's how I felt before I went into labour! I felt like that about 3pm. Waters broke at 6.30pm, contractions from 11pm, had DD at 7.22am!
