Labor, how close am I

Ok yesturday i went to the doc, and i was 2cm dialeted and 60% effaced, today i started getting period like cramps that would come and go, and i was about 3 to 4 cm dialated and 70 % effaced, she said yesturday i should go into labor within 1 to 3 days, is there any real good sign that labor will start? im dying to have this baby. im almost 38weeks.

  • I was there already this morning, she said not yet, maybe tommorrow, so i guess im just waiting. She kept asking me if i was feeling nausious, is that what happens when labor kicks in, i dont remember much about that with my first pregnancy.

  • I would wait it out until they follow a pattern and are 5-7 min apart.

  • if ur already dialaited and having some contractions.... you could jumpstart labor by going for a long walk. just not too far. go around the block a few times.
