  • I didn't know twice when I was in labor.... not all women are the same, our tollerance for pain is different. I saw some blood and I went... I thought it was those braxton things because it didn't hurt, just felt like tightening.
    If you see blood or your water breaks, then call the dr for sure...
    I went to the hospital when I saw the blood, they told me I'd know if I was in labor so I went to leave.... hubby told me to stay just incase... they checked, I was dialated to a 6 and she was born about half an hour later (with no drugs). Most women will know tho, the contractions are consistant and very painful. I was just very very blessed that two of mine came so easily, and last one was induced and I definetely know the labor pains after that.

  • My contractions don't actually work until they break my water. I get 3 cm dialated and done! They let me go having contractions for weeks until i make term.

    you'll know.
