How do You Know if Your in Labor?

The best way to know if you are in labor is to start timing your contractions if they are steady and a certain time like say 5 minutes apart then you are probably in labor. The closer the contractions get the closer you are getting to the finish line. Also if you have what they call a ‘bloody show’ which is a bloody mucus discharge this will indicate labor is near as well of course as your water breaking.
