  • You don't. At my last doctor's appointment, they were talking about induction because I wasn't dilated, had no braxton-hicks, nothing. I was 40 weeks, so they were going to let it for another week. I gave birth 2 days later.

  • You only know the day you go into labor and actually have contractions. I am 37 weeks and 1.5 cm dilated. That could go on for WEEKS though.

  • I knew I was getting close because I started bleeding. I looked it up and read that ment I was dialiating (but not all women will have this). I had dd two days later.
