Re: Dilation and Effacement as a labor timer? ISO experience

My baby has been engaged since about 35 weeks. At 37 weeks I was 50% effaced and 1 cm dilated. I lost my mucous plug at 37 weeks and 5 days (it has since regenerated, been lost again, vicious cycle.) At 38 weeks I was about 60% effaced, 1 cm dilated. I am exactly 40 weeks today and still pregnant. I really want him out!!

Any important changes you noticed before the onset of labor? ( besides the obvious: mucus plug, show, water broke etc)

Due in about a week and curious about what others mamas experienced before labor. Thanks!
I was 2cm 50% from 36 w. Baby would be low than pop up. Common for those with more than one baby. Lost plug 3xs. Bloody show twice. Baby came at 40.3 wks.
Cant read much into any of the above imo. All my other 3 came early. This one came late. I was pg almost 5 morewks this time.
