Honey is into the last ten days of her pregnancy. she is resting and waiting for things to start happening. In the early stages of labour, which we anticipate to be around the 27th October, she may go off her food and start panting heavily. She should start increasingly frantic digging in and around her bed. She will be restless. Then the contractions will start. That is the theory at any rate, but she may not go through all the stages, and the real action usually takes place in the early hours, when we are not really at our best, so we are prepared for anything!
