Are these signs of labor or am I just hopeful?

Some irregular contractions, loose bowels, pelvic pain... I'm miserable. What are the other signs besides regular contractions and your water breaking? Anything?

  • Sounds like false labor. Water breaking isn't really one either. You could give birth without your water ever breaking or your water could break and labor won't start. I think you should just wait for regular contractions.

  • I have those same symtpoms and am in my 38 week of pregnancy. This is my second child so I try not to read into ever symptom im having until i find that im having regular contractions that are closer and closer together.
