Answer: Each pregnancy is different, and every woman shows different signs that she is going into labor. The earliest sign is that the belly drops in the final weeks. This results from the baby’s head lowering toward the pelvis and into birthing position.
Here are a few other symptoms:
- Red discharge (the “bloody show”)
- Breaking water
- Contractions less than 10 minutes apart
- mucus plug is released
Be sure to call your doctor the moment you think you are in labor.
