From a 2x mom... you begin to waddle (the head drops down lower and the hormones begin to relax your joints even more), you can have sporadic contractions that help begin the dilation and effacement of the cervix (it's only when they become regular and close together that you need to worry) the baby can be less active because it is so crowded (still check for movement regularly) you can loose your mucosal plug with pussy or bloody discharge (usually before or during labor). Good luck!
