Does anyone feel like labor is close?

Has anyone started feeling like labor is close for yourself? Lately I jus feel different. I feel like labor is approaching nd it's like almost here. Idk if it is or not but idk I have started to feel different than I ever have n it keeps me asking myself if its close. I know labor happens when it happens but I feel like I am so close to holding my baby girl. Is it jus me being anxious? Or is this a sign she is coming soon? I keep askin myself. What are your experiences with previous pregnancys? Did you jus know it was coming? Did you feel like it was days or weeks before? Or did you feel like it was nd it didn't Til your due date or later? Jus curious.

I had a MAJOR mood swing the day before. After a week of crazy nesting.. I then thought my contractions were me being constipated..  it all made sense when I had her. All the signs clicked.
