Hi  and congratulations!

I think labour is different for everyone.  I know the start of my labour was different with each of my girls.  With my oldest daughter my water broke at home after a couple of hours of minor labour pains.  Also with her I had back labour.  With my second  daughter I had strong stomach labour and they had to break my water.  So I don't think there is any hard and fast rule.  With my first I lost my "mucus plug" two days before delivering and I don't remember losing it with my second. 

Sorry I don't think I am being much of a help. 
Trust me, when it is real labour you will know it.

Labor is different for everyone.  My labor was completely different with both my girls.  I don't think anybody can tell you what it's going to be like.  I know it's scary but it will be the most exciting day of your life.  Congratulations.

Congrats for sure!

For me it felt much like the other mommies.

Cramps, Cramps, Cramps.

I stood up to go to the bathroom and my water broke.

I thought I had wet my pants ..lol

It's amazing though, no matter how tough labor is...we women just kind of step up to the plate and get the job done! We're tough chicks!

Good luck! You will do great!
