How do I know I’m in labor?You'll know you're in labor if:
- You have strong and regular contractions that last 30 to 60 seconds and come 5 to 10 minutes apart.
- Your water breaks. Your baby has been growing in amniotic fluid (bag of waters) in your uterus. When the bag of waters breaks you may feel a big rush of waters or you may feel just a trickle.
- You bleed a little from your vagina. This is called bloody show.
