  • You could start labor any minute...or it could be another week or two, sorry!

  • it comes at its own pace ,no one can say for sure ,if its your first it could take longer than any subsequent pregnancies you may have . good luck

  • Probably soon. Get out and walk, or do house work like washing floors on your hands and knees, and i'm sure you will be in labor in no time at all.

  • Like previous posters said, it could be in an hour or a week. Go for a walk, as long as you can stand to. This will help the baby drop into birthing position. Make sure you get all your cleaning and that kind of stuff done now, because you're sure not going to have time once the little one arrives!
