  • They should be intense enough to take your breath away. This is for 'most' women. If you have a high threshold for pain it very well could be. Are you hydrated? Drink a BIG glass of water and rest. If they keep up I would at least go get checked. The other thing to consider is bloody show. 'most' women will have a pink discharge during active labor.
