What are the signs of labor?

FTM. 34 weeks. I was wondering what are some signs of approaching labor?

I don’t mean when I actually go into labor but more like certain pains, feelings, discomfort etc… Thanks everyone!

Stomach bug symptoms. All of a sudden puking, and diarrhea. Emptying your system to get ready for labour.

Also from experience, painful hips (I had contractions in my hips and butt)

Mine was lower back pain where I could hardly walk. I tolerate allot of pain so that is all I remember then the hospital. Never had actual labor contractions until I got there.

For me the most obvious signs were the morning I went in to labor I woke up nauseous and extremely tired. Even after sleeping 15 hrs. The day before I went in to labor I woke up and my Hands and face were extremely swollen. This was my 3rd pregnancy so I was very aware of my body and how I was feeling. I paid close attention.

Ur lower back will have alot of pressure and hurt, well it’ll be very uncomfortable. Your contractions will be very close and u will just know that it’s happening. It’s def different from Braxton hicks. It’s different for everyone but when u go into labor, u will know in ur heart it’s about to get real. Lol

Feeling ill – I got extremly nauseas
Bloody show
