Could it be the beginning of the end?

I was at the hospital having an NST today and the nurses were, first of all, having some trouble consistently tracking the heartbeat because of all the extra fluid, then noticing a number of contractions, and also the baby was very active. I wasn't feeling the contractions that strongly, but on the way home and tonight they've included some cramping, which I didn't previously have with Braxton-Hicks, and I even felt one in my back. Not sure if this is just the feeling of the Braxton-Hicks changing, or a sign I could go into full-blown labor soon.
Although I really wouldn't mind him a few weeks early (and it might mean avoiding a c-section later), I'm not quite prepared for him yet. My baby shower is this Wednesday and I don't even have a bassinet for him yet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he will hold out for two more weeks so I can be more ready for him, but don't think it's any more up to him than it is to me.
