Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

If you have a history of going into labor early - I would see your dr. and ask for an internal exam. They say although every pregnancy is different, usually if you have had it happen with previous pregnancies, your chances are higher to go into labor early again.  Make sure to rest as much as you can (I know that is hard with 2 other kids) because being more active with those kind of symptoms can put you at risk for pre-term labor as well.  Good luck, hope everything goes well!
That happened to me for 2 weeks before I had my daughter. My doctor said it is just the pressure from her getting in position. But it felt like she was ready to shove on through. I agree with ambera17 though with your history of pre-term labor you should get with your doctor. Good Luck!
Your doctor will be already aware of your history of pre-term labour, well they should know if they don't. The pains are very normal. It's happens to me through all 3 of my pregnancies. In your next doctor visit do make it aware. Don't get too excited though as each pregnancy  (and delivery) is different. For me my first two were early (not preterm) and my last one I went into labour on my due date. Be aware and patient as it's very hard to do.
