OK, so I am not due until Thursday, but I am getting so intensely impatient! What's making it worse is that I keep getting what I think may be contractions...tightenig in belly (unless it's her balling up...not sure), pressure very low, and low back ache. Sometimes I get an intense feeling of having to go to the bathroom (and usually there's nothing when I try to go). They last a minute or so and then they are gone. BUT, I've been having these "contractions" for over a week now, but a little more often today, especially when I'm walking around...but definitely not a few minutes apart...more like 15 or more minutes apart. Can these be contractions? Or do you think she just may be stretching and balling up? AAAAHHHHH!

Sounds like they are Braxton Hicks or mild contractions to me. They are really annoying like that towards the end.

Oh I really hope I am. I am ready for her to come. I know I'm not going to get much sleep when she comes, but at least I will be able to get more comfortable at night when I lay down to rest. Last night I slept sitting up - nothing else works for me!

Also, it won't be horrible to be able to put my own socks on again by myself either! LOL

Sounds like contractions to me. I was having them for two weeks before I had Josiah. When I got to the hospital they told me I was having contractions 1-7 minutes apart.
