with my other two pregnancies i "cleared out" so to speak when i was already having mild contractions, so don't hold out any hope of this being "it" if you aren't having other symptoms.
Having said that everyone is different, but other than the obvious symptoms here are some more less obvious symptoms that i had before i was sure i was in labour: generally feeling not quite right, a bit crampy, restlessness, i was irritable, not being able to lie down as it is more uncomfortable, feeling generally unwell and out of sorts which could include being sick and emptying bowels, although i wasn't sick, then the crampyness i realised may be contractions as they were in waves but not painful, then i lost my mucus plug and i was sure i was in the early stages of labour and they got more and more regular as the time went on, it was pretty slow for me and it took probably 12 hours for the contractions to really get going before i even went to hospital.

Live in the present, remember the past, and fear not the future, for it doesn't exist and never shall. There is only now.

your body is clearing it's self out so that when it is time the only thing your pushing out is the baby...however soon is a relative term...it could still be a few days or weeks before you really go into labor and have the baby.
