  • You may still have 3 weeks. BUT....look at it this way...once labor really starts and becomes consistant, you will already be halfway through the process. It shouldn't take long at all.

  • I am surprised doc did not keep or send you to the hospital at that point. First baby? no way of knowing or even guessing with first. Good luck mama!!

  • I take that back. I was 2-3 hours out, or less (no concept of time by that point!). My midwife put me in the shower for a while and I got to an 8 and then he was born just a few contraction later.

  • If you are 39 weeks then *probably* within 3 weeks, as that's the average.
    But might be longer...
    Best wishes!

  • lol well don't count on the plug as anything because I lost my plug at 36 and a half weeks with baby #2 and I kid you not she wasn't born until 41 weeks on the dot and I was 1 cm dialated for all those weeks.

  • Lucky! I'm 39 weeks today and I'm not dilated at all lol and this is my 2nd. Anyways sounds like you are getting very close! I would say tonight or maybe tomorrow.
