i have just asked my cousin who is a midwife and she said lots of people lose their musuc plus 2-3 weeks before active labour begins, for others it is sooner. It can be anything from a few days to a few weeks

why dont you try going for a nice walk, remember to take your phone with you, make sure its charged and not go too far just in case even better, take someone with you. They do say that walking helps get things moving.

I am going to be the same come April, i am such a planner too!

then have a cup of tea, put your feet up and watch a movie 🙂 do some cleaning ( though you have probably already done that!)

Everything I can find says it can take up to 2-3 weeks after you lose your mucus plug.  Or you could go into labor today.  Crossing my fingers it’s sooner rather than later.

Yeah, I’m trying to remember, but I think it was a good two weeks between when I lost my plug and when I had my daughter.  I would pick up your dogs, quite honestly.  There is a chance that you could go right into active labor, but I think the chance is bigger that you might have a bit of a wait.

P.S. I was dialated 3cm for WEEKS before I gave birth.  I was so excited, but it ended up meaning nothing.

Also, I just realized i’m kind of a downer.  I’m sorry–you’re coming up on the beginning of the end!  Maybe try to make time for one last nice meal with your husband?  DH and I did this two days before Dirty Delete was born, and it was really nice!
