Cold symptoms (sore throat). Labor?


I've been having cold like symptoms for the past two days. I'm definitely not sick (been home and away from people, cause I'm so close to 40weeks). I've just had a really bad sore throat, a little nose dribble (when I drink hot tea) and that's it. No fever or anything.

I've heard it's a sign labor is near.

Is this true?

Has this happened to anyone before?

I'm 39weeks 2days. I'm worried my body won't be strong when/if labor comes.
