How soon do you think I'll go into labor?

So I've been having prelabor symptoms for a week and a half.
Contractions here and there. Baby dropping a little bit here and there and now had dropped quite a bit more. Loose bowel movements. For the last two days I have been so tired/sleepy it is ridiculous. The last two days, as well as today so far, I have not had much of an appetite I guess you could say. I feel sort of hungry or thirsty but can't find anything to satisfy me.
My SO and I have been having sex pretty much everyday hoping to boost whatever is already going on :p
I've been having more back pain, different than usual. More of a dull ache rather than the sharp sciatica pain. Also a lot of hip pain. And today more so than the last week I've been feeling more pressure in my outer vag area
So when do YOU think I will go into active labor? This is a just for fun, curious question. Thanks! :)

  • I don't know, I'm going through the same exact thing here. I'm ready to move on to the next stage here. My back and pelvis hurt so badly that I can hardly walk.

    Good luck to you!

  • if your not losing your plug, it maybe a while before you go into labor, (weeks) that was my experience but even losing my plug still took many days still before I was having my baby
