  • It's healthy and normal. Once you lose the mucus plug you know you're getting close. As for labor and's a very very intense pain not one that is easily mistaken. Hope that helps.

  • You are headed to labor and delivery. Your body is preparing you. Look for contractions, also be on the look out if you lose your mucus plug. Some people never notice, and some do.

  • That baby is sitting ontop of everything. She's probably head down and really in that canal with everything else.
    Don't be alarmed if you start going poo a lot more too. That means the baby is locked a loaded, ready for decent. Though decent could be a little while off.
