  • can be that day or could be weeks. it's not a real accurate time measure. I lost mine at about 20-21 weeks, my daughter was born at 36 weeks. I was on very limited activity after that though.

  • Eventually, but there is no real set time frame. It could be hours, days, or longer. It is a sign of impending labor, but no one is really sure. I was dilated to 3 cm for almost a month before I had all 3 of my children. With my first I was worried she'd just suddenly fall out (LOL). You will know when real labor begins, I promise.

  • Im 38 weeks and I lost most of mine over the past few days.... I've been having contractions randomly but no labor just yet. There really is no telling when labor will begin, though I really wish there was!
