Q&A: I’m 37 weeks on Sunday and started to lose my mucus plug last night and again this morning. After seeing the doctor today he thinks bub will be arriving in the next week, how long after losing your plug did you go into labour?
Q&A: How did you deal with early labour? Any tips for keeping your mind distracted or dealing with those early contractions for our mums-to-be? Any funny stories to share? I got a friend to braid my hair for no. 3 because I wanted one post-labour photo without my hair in an absolute mess!
