 Post subject: How can I be sure?
PostPosted: Sun Jun 11, 2006 2:28 am 
Hi guys, I was wondering how would I be sure I was really in labor when the time came? For the past month I've been alot of contractions, and have went to the hosptial several times. I'm due in about 13 days and my doctor said that the baby has started to shift down. He also said something about my(servic?) thining and being about 2 or 3 cetimemters dialted. This is my first baby and I'm reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly nervous. The pains so far hurt like heck and feel like the real thing, so if my water doesn't break how will I know its not another false call? And what does it mean to "tear" during delivery?

Oh I changed his name AGAIN.. its going to be Daniel Aidian James That way we'll have the initals

You will know when you are in labor. You will have cramp like pains. I started labor june 4th at 10 p.m. And i didn't have my daughter until 3:05p.m. on the 5th. I was in labor for over 17 hours. I was dialted 2-3 at 6 am the day i had her. then two and half hours later i was 6 cm. The pain is worse when you are in real labor. If you are not sure call the ob department at the hospital and let them know what you are going through. I did that. And your doctor might send you right to the hospital like mine did

No one knows for sure what triggers labor ? and every woman's experience is unique. One of the first signs of labor is your cervix softening and thinning, or effacing. You won't feel this preparation for labor happening. Instead, your health care provider will check for signs of cervical change with vaginal exams. Another of the early signs of labor is your cervix beginning to open, or dilate. Your health care provider will measure the dilation in centimeters from zero to 10.

First of all, your most fertile time is after ovulation, while the egg is traveling down the filopean tube, not a few days before your period starts. Also, there is nothing that states in concrete that you ovulate on the 14th day of your cycle. You need to figure out when you ovulate and plan on having sex during and after that time.

Some of the best ways are to chart your cycle. Mark on a calander every month the day you start your period. Do this for a few months and then count to day 14. Have sex on the days between the 14th day and the 21st day. That is a long enough window that you should get pregnant. But here's my disclaimer- There is nothing that states that you will get pregnant even if you do have sex within this window. There are lots of things that can effect ovulation and pregnancy.

You can also try the basil thermometer method. Buy a basil thermometer. It's different then the regular ones and take your temp before you get out of bed every morning. Do this for a few months and you will notice that your temp will either go up, or drop a few degrees. This is when you ovulate. Have sex when you see it start to rise and then for up to a week after.

There are ovulation kits you can buy at the store. There are different kinds, so you have to find one that works for you.

Go see a doctor right now for a pre pregnancy work up. They will check and make sure that everything is going right and that there aren't issues that need to be addressed before you get pregnant.

Start taking prenatal vitamins. They are good for you and you can take them all the time if you want. They will help build your stores of vitamins that the baby will need. They are fine to take whenever and you don't need a prescription, just the over the counter ones will be fine.

There are books you can get about fertility, maybe you will like to look into some of those also. Good luck!! I hope things work out.
