Im pregnant with my second child, but with my first I never went into labor. My question is, what does the onset of labor feel like? How can you distinguish it from normal cramps and pains?

Trust me, you will know!! The pain is intense and the contractions start to come closer and closer together. Don't worry about it.

The contractions are consistent, and spaced evenly. They gradually get VERY PAINFUL. You'll know.

If you have to ask, you aren't in labor.

I dont know. My water broke with my first two. I didnt even feel the labor pains even though when I got the hospital they were measuring pretty high on the monitor. 

I have been told you will know.

 I agree with everyone else, this is my second but I clearly remember with my son...I knew for a fact when I was ready to go to the hospital!

I thought the same when pregnant with my 2nd. I was induced with my first, so I was worried I wouldn't know. Lol. Well, my light cramping I had with my second was doing the job dilating me, but I knew when it was full blown labor.
