Signs that youre in labor

As your due date approaches, after about the 36th week of your pregnancy, your health care provider may want to examine you more often, typically weekly. The principal medical reason for this is to watch for preeclampsia, the serious form of high blood pressure in pregnancy. He or she likely will also check for the early signs of labor (pre-labor signs) in addition to monitoring your health and that of your unborn child. Your health care provider likely also will review signs of labor with you and your partner.

It's probably one of the most common questions medical professionals hear from expectant mothers: "How will I know when I'm in labor?" You may have heard from other mothers that "you will just know." You may not find that information very comforting.

First-time parents commonly worry that the baby will be born on the way to the hospital. But, in reality, this situation seldom occurs. Labor can start suddenly and progress quickly. More often, though, it doesn't. Usually, more subtle signs announce the start of labor.
