  • The very first signs of my labor was some lower back pain and period like cramps...general uncomfortability followed by contractions that got closer and stronger. My water never broke though...they broke it at the hospital.

  • I never felt any signs of labor thank God, but I did have my son 2 weeks earlier than the scheduled day, it was an emergency c-section because of my high blood pressure.

  • A bad back ache with the first, and with the 2nd? My water broke. Time your contractions to know for sure if it is true labor. If your having regular pains but they go away or lessen if you get up and move around, then it is not true labor.
