  • With my first I lost my plug at 37 and had him at 39 and 5 days. You could be pregnant for 5 more minutes or 5 more weeks. Contractions mean labor, getting closer and longer, plug means nothing, it can regenerate.

  • No one can tell you that!! The baby comes when it's ready. With my second son I had to go out of town at 38 weeks. I went to my doctor for a quick check because I did not want to go into labor away from home. She assured me I had at least two weeks. I had him 11 hours later.

  • Your baby will come when he/she wants to and not a minute before.

  • If staying on your feet at work is too hard on you, then you may want to consider cutting back. But I would encourage you to keep going as long as you can for two reasons. First, if you stay active, your labor and delivery may be easier. Second, you'll want your time off after the baby comes, so don't use it up before unless you really have to. Best wishes for you and your new baby.

  • Within the next few weeks. Keep a bag packed for the hospital. Good luck.

  • For everyone that said within the next three weeks , is that from the own experience or how do you know ?
