please be the real deal!

I've been up on and off for a few hours now with period like pains. They are increasing in intensity and are frequent though I haven't timed them because I've also been trying to get some rest. I know this could be the start of labor but it could also just be my body preparing for labor and they could stop. I'm just hoping these are the real deal! Due date Saturday, induction next Tuesday, really wanting to do all this naturally though!
