Normal labor may begin as soon as two weeks early or as late as two weeks past your due date. Typical signs include:
If you experience these signs, call your doctor or go to the hospital quickly. Your doctor or midwife can confirm whether you're in labor by checking your cervix. If it has thinned and dilated, your baby is on its way.
Good luck, Mom. Something amazing is about to happen.
If you've had sleepless nights waiting for baby to arrive, remember you'll soon need plenty of rest to keep up with your busy little baby.
