Should I feel this way right before birth?

I am due in three days with my first. I feel calm and content well a little impatient to meet my new baby but really calm. People say I should be cleaning like crazy or I should look lower in the belly. My daughter is in position and my house is clean, I'm just waiting. Is this okay or should I be having other symptoms? Does this mean she will be late? I also feel happy and healthy no pain really, just stretching.

I wish i felt like you when I was about to have my first and second baby lol...It's normal !!everyone is diffrent.. I had pains for 6 weeks before my first child was born ..ANNOYING ! lol with my second I had to be in bed rest ..My friend had no pains at all during the whole pregnancy and one day her water broke with no pain 2 hours later her son was born but 30 minuts after her water broke she did have pain cause the baby was coming ofcourse. So everyone is diffrent.. Goodluck and CONGRATS !!

Nope. You are doing just fine. Don't let others tell you how you SHOULD feel. Just be how you are. Calm and relaxed is a great way to be before labor.

Due dates are just an estimate, so you could go tomorrow, or a week from now. Good luck and congratulations.
