  • well if its true labor, you will know eventually. the baby wont just pop out and you going, oh i didnt know! lol. Usually its cramping, water leaking (smell it to tell the difference), bleeding. if you call your hospital or ER, theyll proabably have you come in, but they understand that you dont know, and dont feel bad about going several times. my water broke first, and I went in, and it was time! i was lucky cuz it was obvious, but when it really is the real thing, you will surely know. and being a first timer, you should have plenty of time to get to the hospital before it comes.

  • just becuae its your first child doesnt mean it will take a long time. when my sister went into labor with her first, her water broke and we took her to the hospital immediately and she had the baby within 2 hours. the second her water broke and we took her right away as well and they took her straight to delivery she had the baby within 30 min.. and the third was induced bc the doctor was going on vacation lol.

  • Read a couple books, which will really ease your mind, one great is What to Expect When You're Expecting. This is kind of like a guide book, so you can turn right to "7 Months" and see what you should expect to see, feel, and then on to the next few weeks...
