Question About Labour

chriss - March 12

My due date is March 14th, this Wednesday and when to my Dr last wednesday, he told me that I was two cm dialated already, for the past several days, I have been having very strong BH contracftions (at least I think theyh are bh, I have been having bh contactions since about 16 wks) I also have alot of pressure and pain in my va___a, my belly always feels tight now too. I Haven't really kept track of times, I don't think there is any regularity to the timing, but they just seem to be getting stronger and more freqent as time goes by. I am wondering if this could actually be labour and I just don't realize it, I a guess I am waiting for some huge sign like my water breaking or really painful contactiions........ What do you ladies think? When did you know for sure that it was really labour?

Hey There, Yes! This could most certainly be labor! if you can time the contractions... you'll notice a pattern... if you DO notice they'er every few minutes (and sometimes the pattern IS irregular!)... then its labor! Irregular contractions might be like... a contraction every 10 minutes for awhile, and then down to every 5 minutes for awhile, hten every 12 minutes for a bit... but when they're consistently coming... get to the doctor / hospital / midwife... As for a BIG sign... eventually your water MIGHt break on its own, or it might not -- so don't rely on that as a sign. time those contractions... and if you're nervous... get to the doc!
