Of all the labor symptoms, contractions are the ones that are the surest sign that labor has begun. As labor begins and progresses, your contractions will increase in duration and intensity. They will differ from Braxton Hicks contractions in that in addition to the tightening or contracting of your uterus, they will often be accompanied by a radiating pain which may include pain in your back, and do not subside by changing position. If you can no longer talk through a contraction, these are mostly likely the real deal!

Time your contractions from the onset of one to the onset of the next. If they last at least one minute, and have been occurring every five minutes for the last hour, you are likely in labor and should contact your doctor or midwife immediately, or head to the hospital.

If you're experiencing some or all of these symptoms before 37 weeks, be sure to contact your doctor immediately — you may be experiencing pre-term labor. Monitor your baby's movements, and notify your doctor if you notice a significant reduction in movement. If you are experiencing heavy bleeding or severe pain, you should contact your doctor or head to the emergency room.

Waiting for labor to start can be frustrating, especially if you've been sent home from the hospital with false labor or early labor symptoms. Remember to trust your instincts and don't hesitate to call your doctor with any questions or concerns — it's their job!
