True labor will not usually stop. Labor that stops is, by definition, false labor. False labor is common, especially in a second or third (or fourth, etc.) pregnancy. These contractions, however, are useful in that they help prepare the cervix for labor by softening it, thinning it out, and dilating it. First time moms often begin labor with a long, closed and thick cervix; women who've had a baby before will usually have a softened, somewhat dilated cervix when they start. It's hard to predict when any woman will go into labor. Contractions may be off and on for days before real labor begins. Eat, stay hydrated, and get as much rest as you can until it does.
Yes, however, on tv you have a contraction & you go to the hospital & the baby is born. With all of my babies, i had back pain & contractions for weeks before they were so painful i could not stand it (active labor- 4 to 8 cm dilated). So if the pain is not bothering you, you are probably having contractions & your body is gearing up to go into heavy, active labor soon!
Three main signs. 1.) You have strong, regular (every 10 minutes) and painful contractions. Early on you may have painless Braxton-Hicks contractions, these do not indicate labour. (False labor) 2.)Your cervix dilates and becomes thinner. 3.) The babies' head moves downwards. You might also get some period-like crampy lower back pains and maybe experience your waters breaking. If your waters break, they must be associated with contractions for it to indicate you are in labor. A Student Doctor.
Uterine contractions are the official start of childbirth. Unfortunately, the first contractions are not as recognizable as people think. Many sensations can be confused with early contractions and some are not even felt. The last days before childbirth may find a woman so uncomfortable that the first contractions pass unnoticed in the haze of all of the other changes and sensations a body about to give birth is undergoing. There are clearer signals that labor is coming but they are different for everyone. If there is more than one signal, it should be considered as a stronger signal. Back Pain, Stomach Pain or Stomach Ache Back pain, stomach pain or ache could be very early contractions or false contractions. They could also be symptoms of dehydration. If the mother to be is not drinking plenty of water, she should be. If these pains subside and return, they should be timed to determine whether or not they are contractions. Pains that last less than a minute and return every 4 to 7 minutes are probably contractions. The Baby's Head Moves Down Into The pelvis. When the baby's head drops, the belly is lower and the head is pressing on the bladder. Most pregnant women are able to distinguish the baby's head from other parts of the baby's body in the last trimester. This can also occur a few weeks before birth but this is a sign that labor is imminent. Vaginal Discharge When there is vaginal discharge that is bloody or brownish it means the cervix has begun to dilate. Labor may not start for a few more days. Bleeding or even a little bit of pink on the toilet paper mean the doctor should be notified. Baby is more still. Babies often stop moving just before birth. If the baby has not moved for several hours, the doctor or midwife should be notified. Leakage or Gushing Fluid that is leaking from the vagina either gushing or just dribbling means the amniotic sac has ruptured. This is a sure sign that labor has begun and the practitioner must be called. Contractions in the Final Stage of Labor The final stage of labor, just before the baby is born comes with severe and unmistakable labor contractions. In almost all cases, there will be many other signals that labor has begun. It is very rare that these last contractions that are just before the actual birth come without many warning signals.
Symptoms of preterm labor can include all or some of the following: period-like cramps, contractions that intensify and become more frequent, back pressure, unusual pressure in your pelvis, bloody discharge, rupture of membranes, changes in cervix as measured by an ultrasound. *Information obtained from What to Expect when your Expecting.
there are alot of different signs of labor. the obvious ones would be the breaking of your water and the "bloody show". If you do not know what the bloody show is it's simply a mucus plug that has a red tint to it. another sign is when you start to have contractions and that's just a nagging lower back pain that moves around to your lower stomach.
