I woke up at 3 a.m. & was wide awake I didn't get back to sleep until about 7:00 a.m. when I did finally wake up I had back pain, lower back pain and cramping for about an hour or two then I suddenly felt the urge to paint my nails, straighten my hair & do my makeup & just get ready. are these signs I'll be starting labor within a day or two?

Hi, I'm not sure I'll be much of any help as I was induced with my son, but a few days before I had him I noticed the same things. I'd been cramping for about a week and thought I was going into labor multiple times. I didn't feel the urges to get ready as you explain, but I felt the need to clean CONSTANTLY right before I gave birth. The reason I think my input could help somewhat is because when I went in to get induced I was already showing signs of labor so I delivered 11 hours after arriving in the morning. The back pain I'm not sure about because I had back pain my whole pregnancy. It sounds like you're definatley nearing the end to me, but you can never be too sure! Everyone's bodies are different and everyone's signs of labor vary.

Yep! It's called nesting. Ur baby is close to coming. Could be a day or two, could be a few weeks. It's different for every mother. Good luck! Enjoy it now. Once that bundle of joy comes it a whole new world!!!
