Signs of impending labour?

I was took into hospital at 32 weeks with contractions that stopped on their own. I've made it to 37 weeks (on Sunday coming) but for the past week I've had cramp on and off. twice it's woken me in the early hours of the morning.

is this a sign labour may start soon?

I have also had a lot of tightenings but not with any regularity yet.

I've been having regular contractions and cramps for a week sad I think if you have contractions, a show, and the contractions get worse as you walk around then perhaps that's a good sign. Everything else is just tormenting yourself (which I have done too much of in the past week!)

I am also 37 weeks (but on the Tuesday coming).. I have also had cramps and tightening on and off and often get woken up during the nights, much like you.

I asked my midwife about it and she passed it off as just your body preparing to go into labour... I'm still ever hopeful though!

The midwives didn't think I'd make it this far after the little bugger tried to escape early.

Feeling huge and just want to meet him/her now confused
