Labor signs: You have signs that your labor could start earlier than 39 weeks, which is the minimum ideal time for your baby to develop in the uterus. I would suggest you take it easy with daily chores, and avoid intercourse or any strenuous activity.

See details: You used a lot of question marks without actually asking a question. You should be able to feel it when the baby's head drops into position. This can occur as early as 32-34 weeks but it does not necessarily mean you will deliver early. It usually engages at 37-38 weeks.
