She will know when it happens, labor that is! From an experienced mother of 3, it could start any time or it could be a couple weeks before she has the baby. Sometimes near the end when the baby starts getting into position you could have a little staining from the blood vessels and stuff. Hope everything goes well...I know how anxious everyone gets at the end. At least it is close by!
