  • The strong preference to stay home.
    Acting / feeling "hazy" (kind of like before you get an illness, sort of out of it a little bit).
    Nesting ( = fidgeting, restless).
    Loose poops.

  • Cramps like a menstrual cycle, tightness around your belly area. Pain in the center of your back. Loose mucous like discharge.hope it helps. But if you have doubts called the doc please .;)

  • Been there...
    I gave up with my last baby after I passed my due date.
    My children were born between 40-43 weeks (later when not induced).

    You might not have any of these "signs" ...or all of them and yet *not* go into labor until 4 or 5 weeks after.
    If you have 5 more weeks to remain within the average gestational period you might want to get distracted...
    ;-)

    All set to go in every way?
    Are you feeling emotionally prepared for labor and Motherhood?
    You could focus on preparing for postpartum now, etc...

    Good luck!
