  • yeah it kinda sounds like you will have your angel in your arms very soon. if you want to speed it up walk alot and sex will help things move right along. If the contractions continue and get stronger and closer together your in labor. Congrats momma such a joy full time

  • Yeah it sounds like it. If the contractions become regular just time them and when they are 5 minutes apart for at least an hour then you should be in full labor and ready to go to the hospital. I lost my mucus plug at 5 am started contractions at 7am and had my daughter at 6pm that night. it's different for everyone and i guess it depends on how many you've had or if it's your first. Good luck!

  • Congrats!!! Time the contractions. When they get to be about 5-7 mins apart get ready to go to the hospital,and if its far away you might want to call your doctor earlier to let him/her know you are in labor. Congrats and btw, you might just be in labor right now =]
