Pack your bag early. I had mine at 35 weeks and I didn't have my bag packed. My husband had to go home and get me stuff. I ended up having to ask my grandmother to bring me stuff. He couldn't find everything

I had my bag packed early -around 32 weeks just in case! And everyone says you will know when it's the real thing but I didn't know I was in labour till my water broke-lol still was in labour for 23 1/2 hours after that but I had supposedly been in labour all that day too. I thought I was just having cramps.

Cramping
I have started having this weird cramping in my vagina and it really is starting to get worse more so when I pee or walk I lie down and sometime it usally quits. Is that normal?

Sometimes the cervix gives you pains when it is preparing for birth too--just like the b/h contractions are doing. And be4 baby is born you are usually opened to atleast 2 or 3 cm.

You'll Know
True labor (contractions) begins in the back and radiates around to the front of your belly. The contractions are in regular intervals and increase in duration and intensity. Walking doesn't relieve the pain. False labor contractions are in the belly and are irregular, and walking decreases the pain of the contractions.
You'll know.
