  • What are warning signs of premature labor?
    It may be possible to prevent a premature birth by knowing the warning signs and calling your health care provider if you suspect you are having premature labor. Warning signs and symptoms of premature labor include:

    A contraction every 10 minutes, or more frequently within one hour (five or more uterine contractions in an hour)
    Watery fluid leaking from your vagina (this could indicate that your bag of water is broken)
    Menstrual-like cramps felt in the lower abdomen that may come and go or be constant
    Low, dull backache felt below the waistline that may come and go or be constant
    Pelvic pressure that feels like your baby is pushing down
    Abdominal cramps that may occur with or without diarrhea
    Increase or change in vaginal discharge
