  • You could be getting closer...it's really hard to say. With 2 of my kids I lost my plug the day I went into labor, but with my last I lost it a week before hand. When did the doc say you were 1 cm? How many weeks are you now? Sex will definately help and so will walking. Stay hydrated though!

  • If it's not regular, I wouldn't worry just yet, but maybe take it easy. You could just be having more going on because you're body is trying to tell you that you're doing too much.
