  • Actually no. I had contractions with my daughter starting at 28 weeks along.. They put me on medication to attempt to stop the contractions and such.. They kinda worked, kinda didn't.. I ended up carrying my daughter til 40 weeks, 3 days.

  • not really honestly. I guess you can say in some instances there are signs of having a baby early, but generally those things can happen to anyone. I started having contractions at about 30 weeks with my daugher. I was also dialated to 3 and 50% effaced for about 5 weeks and still had her only 5 days before my due date.

  • Not for me. I went into labor at 36 1/2 wks and I never had any signs before that! I labored for 4 days before he was born.
