  • Sounds like you are VERY, VERY close to labor. Have you tried walking and sex?

  • I didn't. I was 5 days past my due date then went into labor at midnight with my first. That happened for all 3 of my kids - no early indication that they were ready to come out.

  • You're getting very close, I was dialated to 4 for about 3 weeks though, with my last 2 babies. Everyone is so different, just remember, as excited you are now, once the baby comes, you're so busy and tired, you'll wish she/he would be back in the womb,lol...........

  • With my first I had false labor pains for three days before she came and had had none the rest of my pregnancy. Each day they would get worse and more "real" feeling and then finally progressed to actual contractions. With my son this didn't happen. I had false labor for weeks and weeks before he was born. The only indication was spotting and mild cramping the night I went in labor. I was told to try walking to see if they would get more regular and my water broke. I know it's frustrating, but some women have no indicators whatsoever and others do. You'll just have to wait and see! Good luck!
