Honestly, it's NO INDICATION of when you'll go into labor. I've had women dilated to 4 for WEEKS, and others closed up and 0% effaced who were holding a baby the next day. Don't put too much stock into those checks. All you can do is the old sex and walking routine. Also, raspberry leaf tea is great. You can try nipple stimulation, but you have to keep it going in order for it to work (as in, for HOURS).
