It's hard to say, but as far as my first pregnancy, my water broke. Are you having contractions?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

You will just know....you may have back pain, loss of mucus plug, your water breaking, but what you really go by is your contractions.. Once they are coming regularly and once every 5 min. or so, call your doc. Especially first time moms, they have you stay home until they are closer together. Early labor you will have them about once every 20 min. You dont want to go to the hospital like me and asked to leave :S luckily I could walk the halls.

Hope this helps :)
