  • give her time, you still have about a month of pregnancy left, she will come out when she is done, she may not be fully ready to breathe and eat outside of you, be patient.

  • it seems like you are worried because you are having all of this stuff going on and it doesn't seem to be doing anything since you aren't dilated. but it is getting you ready even if you can't tell yet! but that doesn't necessarily mean you will have your baby soon. it could be, like pp said, another month.

    personally, i never had any of that stuff until a few days before my son was born at 41 weeks, but i do know other women who have experienced what you are for weeks before their baby was born.

    good luck!
