6 ways to know if you’re in labor

There's not just one way to know

There may not be a definite sign that labor has begun, but any of these cues may indicate that it’s time.

When it comes to going into labor, everyone always says, “When it happens, you’ll know.” The truth is that labor happens differently for every woman, and sometimes even between the same woman’s different pregnancies, so they aren’t too far off the mark. If you are a pregnant woman or are thinking of having children, though, those answers aren’t very comforting. However, there are some signs that can help you decide when it is time to make your way to Labor and Delivery.
