  • Believe me when the contractions set in you will know when its time to go to the doctor, you wont be asking that question on here when the time comes that's for sure :)

  • You'll know when your in labour, it's almost crippling pain that last a couple of mins, and come every couple of mins.

  • Well, at first it was like a weird tightness in my back, then period cramps, then terrible diarrheal cramps

    When those are getting so bad you almost can't talk and they are close together.
