It's such a crazy thing. One minute you're not in labor, the next you are. It does happen! You will not be pregnant forever.
: Exactly that with my first birth. This time I had a bit more warning, maybe just because I could feel the warm-up cx's more strongly. But with ds I had an exam on Thursday and was high, firm and closed; early Sunday morning my water broke and he was born Sunday night.
Hang in there!! Do what you can to get things moving (EPO, sex, walking, squatting, nipple stimulation, etc etc), but s/he'll come when s/he's ready.
