Hi!
Sometimes pregnancy causes water retention due to pressure of the baby on the large veins. If the baby shifts position, this pressure is lifted off. Also if the baby moves down, you will feel lighter in the upper abdomen area. Yes, you could be heading for labor. Please ask your Obs and Gyn to take a look. Take care!
