    If the scar is completely healed I do not see a problem, but I don't think it will honestly help with it's appearance. As a general rule of thumb, ethanol should not be used of open sores/puncutres/cuts/scrapes and especially surgical incisions. It not only kills the bacteria, but also...

There's really no way to tell. You can be slightly dilated for weeks before going into true labor. On the other hand, you might not be dilated at all and then go into labor closer to your due date. It's oddly not a very reliable way of telling when you'll deliver, until you are in active labor.
Women may start menstruating Seven to nine weeks after caesarean  operation.

Labor pain is felt in the abdomen ( think "cramps" while menstruating, lasting 30 sec. to 2 minutes, with intervals), as the uterus contracts. One can also have pain in the lower back region. Back labor can indicate that the baby's head has not yet turned into the best position for delivery.

No, they are not. The umbilical cord is an actual cord that connects the baby to the placenta. The placenta is the lining of the uterus that is developed over the course of the pregnancy.

Actually, it's best to think about when is the best time to finish your classes! Aim for a class that finishes about a month before your due date. This allows you a few weeks in case you are early, but not too much time ahead that you will forget everything you have learnt! Most antenatal teachers...
First contractions start, then the frequency increases. Your water breaks, followed by the urge to push. This may last some time before the final process called "crowning" the the child's head has started to show through the birth canal.
They say 40 is full term because contraception which is like two weeks counts as part of your term. But in all actuality it is 38. Anything over is getting dangerous because your placenta stops producing the neccesities for the baby.

It possibly could be the waters from the amniotic sac which holds the baby. Sometimes these will not rupture with a burst, but slowly leak from in front of the baby's head. If labor does not start within a day, it might be a good idea to see your doctor.   If the fluid is colored greenish, it...
