  • ok, ive never even heard of that myth or whatever you call it! haha! well i had 4 kids and the only thing that i know when im about to go in, not always true though, is when my plug falls out like ALOT! a little bit here and there might not matter but when the plug comes out alot, thats when everyone gets ready to get in gear!

  • You will spend the next 7-11 weeks peeing. You are due in 9 weeks PLUS OR MINUS 2 WEEKS.

  • Typically you start to pee more those closer you get to the end, but that's because the baby is getting bigger and starts pushing on your bladder, not because s/he's about to come out, sorry. :) Hormones can kick it into gear as well. One of my first pregnancy symptoms was increased urination, like two weeks after I conceived!

    Also, don't let yourself get bogged down with the specific due date. It's only an approximation, usually the correct date is within two weeks on either side. My due date was August 20th, though according to when we had sex, it should have been the 27th...but I kept measuring two weeks BIGGER than the 20th, so maybe I'd actually conceived in November and that light period was really just spotting? I'll never know, though I had a pretty big (and alert) baby, so I'm thinking he was actually three weeks late when he was born on the 25th. Here's hoping your's comes right on time!

  • To go with Americansugar's comment, I think I lost my mucus plug a week or two before I actually went into labor, but it came out over a length of time so I didn't really notice. It will never hurt to be prepared for anything early, just in case!

  • Peeing all the time is because the baby is taking up more space and your bladder shrinks to make room. I know it is hard when people are telling you that it will be 7-11 weeks more, but hang in there... that is nothing compared to how far you have come!
