    I am not sure if you can just "tell" without some signs ... like a bloody show or water breaking... but i do know that when you go to your doctor they can tell by if you are dilated...

      I don't think you can really tell without some signs. Your doctor would be able to kind of give you an idea by how far you are dilated, and what your baby is doing. I know from mine that before labor, a lot of times your baby quits moving around as much. That's why they have you do a fetal movement count also. It helps you to know how the baby is doing. With mine, when I noticed decreased (of course it was pretty much no) movement in the ninth month, I knew it was about to happen.

          Yup. You never know. I was 8 days late and fully dialated, effaced etc. baby was super low and I still didn't go into labor until they induced me.
          As for my daughter, no sign of her. She dropped but no other sign .. Nada but a week early in the mid of night she came hard at fast!!!!

          Mucus plug, bloody show are signs it's coming but you could still have 2-3 days.

          Sneaky little things aren't they?
