How Long does Early Labor Last?

The labor process is one of the few mysteries left in life and we still do not know what triggers labor or why one woman’s labor progresses faster then another. The signs of early labor can begin days before active labor and include early contractions, discharge or bloody show, the baby dropping or dilation. Moms may notice these changes or may notice nothing until active labor begins so don’t make yourself crazy watching for early labor signs. Once true labor begins, you will know without a doubt.
