Warning Signs/Pre-Term Labor Signs

• Problems with your vision
• Recurring headaches
• Fever over 100 °F (37.7 °C)
• Sudden swelling in your face or hands
• Vomiting or diarrhea lasting 24 hours or more
• Vaginal bleeding
• Major change in your baby’s movement
• Sudden pain in your abdominal area
• Pain or burning during urination (This could be a sign of a urinary tract
infection, which poses more risk during pregnancy than at other times.
Don’t try to self-treat it.)
• Anything else that doesn’t seem right (Trust your instincts!)

SIGNS OF PRETERM LABOR (Before 37 weeks)
• Change or increase in vaginal discharge
• Pelvic or lower abdominal pressure
• Constant low, dull, backache
• Mild abdominal cramps (with or without diarrhea) that may feel like
persistent menstrual cramps
• Regular or frequent contractions that occur four or more times in one
hour (which might be painless)

I got this information out of the handbook I got from my prepared childbirth class. I see a lot of women asking questions about warning signs and pre-term labor so I decided to post this and share it with all of you. :)
