You may be getting close to your labor but you will know more if you lose your mucus plug or if your water has broken. Take a hot bath and start walking, that will help it go faster.

Most probbably you are close to labor, if you you start having contracrions (Braxton Hicks) and there is softening and thinning of cervix. Anytime after 35 weeks you should start taking such symptoms seriously. This is the time for your doctor top conduct a vaginal exam to see whether your crvix has started to change.

Yes you are close to labor. Contractions mean labor. Call the doctor and follow his instructions. This does not sound like false labor.

Yes you are very close. You will need to pay close attention to length of time between contractions. The shorter the amount of time between contractions, the sooner you are to delivering.

I never went into labor but was told by my doctor that a thinning cervix means your getting close! Good luck!

Very close to going in to labor. Depending on how far apart the contractions are and how far along you are.
