Safe to run while pregnant?

Hey I'm a first time mommy :) I'll be 40 weeks on Saturday , and since Tuesday I have had period - like cramps and now I am starting to feel pressure down there, like she is pushing down. I know walking helps but someone who had a baby 4 months ago told me when she started cramping she ran down a hill and 3 days later she was pushing. I just thought you couldn't run while pregnant? So is it safe, or should I just stick to walking?

    You can run while pregnant but only if you have been running the whole time and before. It is not a good idea to just start running while pregnant. Also it is very dangerous to run down a hill while pregnant you could trip and hurt the baby. Just be patient baby will come when baby is ready.

    No, do not. For several reasons. Especially at 40 weeks...

    Unless you're running for your life, you don't need to be running anywhere, that's plain crazy.
