Is he coming soon???

I'm 36 weeks 4 days and today I was a ball of energy, I cleaned my kitchen from top to bottom, cleaned the living room, did 5 loads of laundry and pretty much didn't feel pregnant at all. I've had several people say once you have a day like this labor could start with in a couple days. Has anyone else started labor within a couple days of their big energy boost?

  • I'd just keep my eyes open for the mucous plug in your panties or toilet! They say once you loose that you should start labor in around 48 hours or less.

  • I do not have a crystal ball so I cannot tell you when your baby will be born. There is no good indication on when you will go into labor. Your mucus plug can be a sign of dialation/effacement but it doesn't mean labor will start in 48 hours. Your mucus plug can also regenerate. You might be dialated to a 4 for WEEKS or be hard and closed and be holding your baby a few hours later.
