I'm due on Sunday and feel like I'm in for the long haul, yet know it could happen at any time. I'm just carrying on with life, although kind of wish I hadn't quit work as early as I did so I had something else to focus on. I do have a 2.5 year old so she keeps me busy.
I had tons of BH with my DD, lost my mucous plug three weeks before she was born, and was 3 cm dilated for the last two weeks. She was two days late, my water broke, and then she was born 60 hours later (pitocin, epidural and vaccum).
This time my BH have completely disappeared in the last month, I have no idea if I'm dilated because I have MWs this time so no internal exams, but the baby's head is engaged (and has been for the last 3 weeks).
This is all to say that I feel the signs can mean everything or nothing!
We just have to wait, blindly, and try to find patience. *Sigh*
Good luck to everyone.
DD born April 7/08 and expecting #2 October 2010!
