  • Probably not honey:( When they ARE getting stronger and 3-4 mins apart then you are probably in labor. I feel ya hon! I am 37 weeks tomorrow and I am SO DONE with this! Walking and orgasms helps...Even if they are self-induced orgasms:)

  • It could be early labor. you never know. You have 2 weeks before the baby is overdue so don't stress. Walk and have sex and eat spicy foods hah!

  • The baby slows down when you start going into labor. I didn't feel ANYTHING leading up to my labor. I was at my last day of work when my water broke and I stayed, finished my shift, drove myself home, changed and grabbed my things, THEN went to the hospital. I took my time. My water broke at 8:30pm and I didn't get to the hospital until 11pm and she was born 6:59am.
