  • Sounds like you're getting SUPER close...


    Get out your walking shoes... Every time I'd walk I'd dilate towards the end. So I went in at 3am false labor went walking for 2 hours just up walking around, up stairs down stairs, other places etc. Then was admitted around 7am that morning.

    So start walking ; ) Good luck hope you have a safe and fast delivery.

  • You might have it early, then you might not. Try to relax. The baby will come when it is ready to.

  • It could go either way. I had a friend at 37 weeks she was dialated to a 3 and contracting 5 min apart. It was false and they sent her home. She was induced and delivered on her due date. The munchkin held out another 3 weeks after that.
