  • You're body will probably do something out of the ordinary. Unfortunatly there is no sure fired way to know, it's different for every mom. Try walking as much as you can, have a lot of sex (i know i know...last thing you want to do! But sperm helps to ripen your cervix). And just listen to your body. YOu'll know :) Hang in there!
