Slight cramping, labour nearing??


So I’m going to be 39 weeks on Thursday and for the past few days I’ve been getting light inconsistent cramping and my lower back/hips as been sore, even when moving positions when I’m sleeping. I’ve also been struggling to walk because of my hips, I do have Hypermobility Syndrome so I think it may make it worse.

Does this mean my body is preparing for labour??

I’m a first time mum and I feel like I don’t know what proper signs to look out for as I have no idea what to expect lol..
