  • I thought the exact same thing! Calm before the storm. Hope your bag is packed hon, cause you're going in!

  • I don't know...I know what you mean though...I'm pretty damn sure my body is incompetent and doesn't know how to go into labor on its own.

  • I was a week past due with my daughter before I finally went into labor, and I swear every person that I saw, including total strangers, asked me when I was due during that last week! If you can sleep, DO IT, because it's the last time you'll get any without baby to wake you up.

  • I was 10 days late on both of mine. Have you had the bloody show yet? Have some wild orgasmic sex, that might start labor.
