The closer you get to the end of your pregnancy, the more the anticipation begins to build. That's why it can be easy to feel certain signs that make you think your baby is on the way, when they aren't. Of course, it's important to remember that every woman is different and can experience completely unique symptoms. In fact, my best friend, who has three children, says that none of her pregnancies or labor and deliveries were the same. When you take all of that into consideration, it's understandable that you might mistake something for being an indication that you're about to give birth.
When I was preparing for the arrival of my son, every little twinge and hiccup made my heart skip a beat. As I neared the end of my third trimester, my doctor encouraged me to keep track of my baby's movements, which is a fairly common practice. This heightened awareness just made me even more convinced that something was a sign that I was about to go into labor, when it was really just a false alarm. If you're curious as about the signs that can make you think your baby is on they when they aren't, then check these out.
