37 weeks - mild menstrual-type cramps and pains/pressure around cervix

Possibly wishful thinking, but could this be the beginnings of labor - or even false labor? I haven't noticed any BH contractions since I went on maternity leave, but even when ds's feet are up and NOT kicking, I feel weird pains and moderate pressure down there.

I'm almost 38 weeks and have been having so much pressure down there it's almost painful.  After my dr checked my cervix at my last appt I was so sore for the next couple days that if felt like the baby was falling out everytime I walked around.  I think it might be a prelabor sign, but probably doesn't mean you're going into labor really soon.  Then again, let's hope I'm wrong and we both have our babies by the weekend.

It could be but you never know. I am on my second baby now & 37 weeks. I had an exam Tues. & the babies head is sooo low she had a hard time getting to my cervex.  I almost delivered at 28 weeks with contractions every 2 min. I was put on meds & strict bedrest. Now I am off all meds, able to resume normal life but nothing yet!!!!! Hang in there. With my 1st I went to the Dr was 4cm, went into labor that night. & had DD next am.
