  • I wouldn't go on any long trips! I sounds like you are definitely on our way! Keep in mind some women walk around dilated at 4 cm for a month and don't even know. Be patient, but it looks good! Congrats!

    PS Bring your own pillow to the hospital with you. You'll be glad you did.

  • There's a good chance you will go soon, especially if you've lost your plug. I think I stayed around 2-3 for the entire last month of my first two pregnancies though so there's no telling. Walk your butt off and put your hubby to good use! Good luck to you.

  • I was the same for 3 weeks all the sex and walking never helped, I ended up being a week overdue and had to be induced.

  • I always dialated & lost my plug a few weeks before I went into labor. It could be hours, it could be weeks. No way to tell.
