LABOR SIGNS and the #1 Way to Know For Sure it’s Labor



IS THIS LABOR? The question on every mama’s mind as she approaches her baby’s arrival. It’s easy to become obsessed with all the sensations from your body and wondering if it means that labor is on its way, but the end of pregnancy should be a time where you find joy in your patience as you’re preparing for birth, focusing your energy on how to have a calm birth, and waiting for your baby to fully develop.

In this video you will learn the most common signs of labor and which of the labor signs is the MOST RELIABLE labor symptom of them all. We talk all things from pooping during labor to answer your questions “Is pooping a sign of labor?” to nausea before labor to, again, answer that question, “Is nausea a sign of labor?”, losing the mucus plug, what do contractions feel like and then when to go to the hospital for labor.

By the end of this video, you’ll know the symptoms of labor so that you can stop obsessing over every little sensation, how to avoid any false alarm L&D pit stops if you’re giving birth at hospital, and feel more confident about your question about, “How long should I labor at home?” Most of the time, those early labor pains like period cramps during labor can be completely dismissed and forgotten about until the real thing sets in!

  1. I had no signs of labor at 38 weeks the morning I woke up, nested like crazy all day, made dinner for 3 nights and pound cake, started having back pains which felt a lot like the usual ones, then my water broke, i never believed I was in labor I was even scared to go in and get sent away!

  2. I didn’t think much of the losing of the mucus plug nor the cramps after I got home from my visit with the obgyn. She had checked my cervix and I wasn’t dialated and I think, if I remember, 50 or 75% effaced

  3. 40+1 and I have all of the above except amniotic fluid … I have contractions in lower back and tension /period cramps on abdominal area but they go away after 4-8 hours !!

  4. I'm 27 weeks and my baby has been moving/kicking? non stop for the last 24 hours and havent been able to sleep and my OB isnt available for 2 days I'm not really sure what this is but I feel pressure on my lungs too it's never been this aggressive 😟

  5. Honestly everyone…….Every woman is different and has different symptoms. My first: normal, easy day. And random horrific contractions hit like a ton of bricks. Went straight to the hospital and was fully dilated and ready to push! There were no prior signs.
    I drove myself crazy watching these kind of videos lol. Two kids later…….none of these signs or symptoms, water never broke…….every single birth experience is unique. Just a waiting game ladies

  6. Am 39weeks can relate to all these comments below people are annoying "no baby yet"
    Well am feeling under pressure though am all alone during the day I feel like crying sometimes

  7. I lost my entire glob of mucus plug and then hours later I had my baby. During that time I was pooping loose stool and felt like I needed to poop without anything coming out.

  8. I knew it was real labor when that one contraction stopped me in my tracks. There was NOTHING else in that moment but that sensation. I remember I was talking to my mom and I suddenly stopped talking and started my breathing 😮‍💨 and just held on to a piece of furniture. Soon after that I got my bloody show and lost my mucus plugged.

    P.S. I had had practice contractions for the last month but the moment I felt that one, I knew it was the real thing!

  9. Congrats to everyone❤️ I am 29 weeks and I am guaranteed to have a early birth and I have to drop out of school cause that isn’t happening any longer can barely do things at home. But just got done painting baby girls nursery now we need to build her crib and do her room I’m so excited for crib to get here. But I’m 15 dad isn’t here but my mom is the best. Been having real contractions because I went in for them but yeah good luck and praying for all of you💗💗💗

  10. I’m 40 weeks and 2 days, I thought the food I ate from a taco truck had given me diarrhea, now it makes since why it’s lasted for so long. I’m happy to hear it’s coming soon now 😂

  11. For me when my mucus plug comes out. I'm in activate labor within five minutes my water will break and shortly after that my baby will be born. I am pregnant with my 6th baby and this has happened to me every time.
