I was two weeks overdue -- that's my big belly right there, towards the end -- and I was wondering if labor would ever begin. It didn't! I had to be induced.
But before my due date came and went -- and after -- I wondered how I'd know when I really was in labor. We all do, right? From the experts at the Mayo Clinic, here are the things to be on the lookout for -- contractions, bloody show, your water breaking, etc. -- and what to expect with each of them.
If you've already given birth before, how did you know you were in labor? What was the onset like?
