I am trying my best to go about my life, have lots of things to do, but after my mw appt yesterday I really feel more sure I am close and I doubt I'll make it to the 6th of feb.

ok, this could be TMI, but just for fun, what do you think? I lost a large amount of my muscus plug last weekend, but not blood tinged, at the same time I felt very nauseated, had cramping going on and was shaky. I have a lot of menstrual crampy feelings in my lower belly for over a week and mw said that is likely my cervix dilating etc. And every time I eat I seem to need to make a BM, and it's very soft diarhea-like (sorry!) and come son with cramping, what do you think? None of this is normal for me. I just don't *feel* like I can hold the baby in until Monday... but I am a first time mom so who knows.

Sounds to me like it's a hormonal surge and that maybe your body is getting ready for labor. A friend of mine experienced something similar to this where she had a cold sweat, more than normal amt of BM's, a bit of cramping, and she had her child a week later.
