Do other ladies have particular "feeling" when they are going to start their periods? I get a feeling in my uterus that makes me want to wear protection - usually I start within a day of that feeling. I'm having that right now - is that a good sign? I've never gone into labor completely on my own, so I'm kind of like a first timer on that. Is this a good sign or just wishful thinking?

Is it that watery feeling? Even though there's no discharge yet? Not that there's water or fluid but like its there. Waiting. ???

Because thats what I feel before I get my period and thats what I've felt like since yesterday.

well.... maybe I'm just :.

I've been feeling like that for about a week now. Still waiting! Good luck to you, though!

Me too! I feel like I've got he worlds worst pms. Cramps, and just that feeling. Course it's been on and off since last week, but has gotten worse tonight, and some odd contractions, so eventually it's gotta mean something right?

Last time labor for me started just like a period. I got really swollen and it felt like mild cramps, which obviously got worse.

Well, sounds like it is a normal feeling then - a good sign, but not neccesarily a sign that it is going to happen very soon. Yeah, I have that watery feeling - like I keep checking to make sure I'm not leaking something. I put a cloth pad on. DS and I slept really well last night and this morning. Right now I'm having some really hard cramps - I wouldn't call them contractions because they don't have the build up to the peak - more like a stab in the lower belly. I haven't true menstrual cramps - just general achiness - but I would say this feels like realy menstrual cramps.
