How will I know when I'm in labour? When should I leave for the maternity ward? These are the most disturbing questions for every pregnant woman.
Here are a few signs that you will find in the last days before the most important moment-the birth of your baby.
Harbingers of birth are those symptoms that herald the birth will soon begin, but do not signify the birth began.
Harbingers of birth are preparatory contractions that start out 5-6 weeks before the birth. Appear in 8-10 minutes, sometimes more often, within 2-3 hours, and then diminish.
2-4 weeks before the birth, the baby takes the "output" position. During this time you will feel the tension in the lower abdomen while walking and pressure in the pelvis.
The fall of the mucous plug or so-called "Cork" is not exactly a sign of beginning the birth, but it is better to tell the supervising gynecologist or your physician. It should be borne in mind that not always pregnant can spot the fall of the mucus plug.
