The great unanswerable - am I going into labour??

Currently 37+5, due to be induced next Weds anyway due to gestational diabetes. Feel weirdly knackered today, took DS swimming this morning and had to get out after about 45 minutes as I wasn't managing. Came home and threw him at DH, got into bed and went to sleep. Woke up about an hour ago with quite strong pelvic pain and pressure - it's not like contractions though, more like constant period pain? Have taken paracetamol and have a hot water bottle which is helping a bit, and tbh just want to go back to sleep, despite having a good night last night. I was induced last time as well so have never gone into labour naturally before so am a bit clueless. Obviously this isn't 'proper' labour but could it be the start?

I always feel exhausted and really ill a couple of days before I go and oddly the day before I feel like I have a ton of energy and I'm skipping about Grin fingers crossed it's all getting started for you.

Ooh that's exciting Holdback. The pain is mostly gone now but the pressure is still there. Hopefully even if it's not anything very exciting going on it should help the induction take less than the four bloody days it took last time Grin.
