Baby Movement and Impending Labor (Question for you)

Isaac has been moving and kicking in the womb like CRAZY lately. There are times he will slow down and barely kick through a day, then there are days that I feel like crying because hes stretching and pushing on everything and it just hurts (its worse when Im more exhausted). Sometimes Im AMAZED my water doesnt break because hes pushing very strongly very LOW.

I had two sleepless nights last week during which he kicked and pushed and moved nonstop from about 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., Im not kidding. The night before last was one of these nights, and I had strong, frequent contractions at the same time. I was sure I would go into labor, but of course I didnt

I was wondering, do you remember if your baby was moving a lot or completely stopped moving right before you went into labor? I think it probably depends on the baby I do remember Emma kicking me in the ribs the entire time I was laboring and pushing (boy was that uncomfortable!). But I cant remember in the days before what she was doing.
