Early labor

For those of you ladies who somehow went into early labor, what were the first initial signs? Did you think something else was wrong other than labor? What was the experience?

I went through a stillbirth. Signs for me was the contractions. Back pain. Stomach feeling really uncomfortable. And what made me go to the hospital was when I started bleeding. I kept feeling like I had to use the bathroom.I tried to go and could feel something down there. I didn't know what contractions were tho. Thats why I wasn't paying attention to the back pain or pains in my stomach

Oh wow. I'm so sorry. I didn't experience labor with my first, the second was a miscarriage. I didn't go through any pain whatsoever it was quick and easy. This time around I'm just scared, I don't know what to expect

Same here I'm so excited with each day but I'm still scared. Every pain I wanna go to the er and every time I go to the bathroom I'm checking for blood

I'm always checking for blood, too. That's how I knew I was miscarrying since there were no other signs. I think I'll be paranoid up until birth, but remaining positive too :) ... I wish nothing but a healthy pregnancy for you, Suga!
