Quoting Angie, mommy of 2!:" I never went into labor on my own so help out please I have an irritable uterus so I'm constantly ... [snip!] ... Is there any other way to tell if your going into labor BESIDES contractions, water breaking, bloody show, losing mucous plug.?"
Quoting I can see you:" only way to know if it's real labor.. is have a trained person check yoru cervix and monitor contractions. ... [snip!] ... actually being in labor. but... timable contractions, consistent and getting closer together... good time to get checked"
