During the latent (or “early”) phase of labor, you’ll start to feel contractions as muscles in the walls of the uterus get to work. These. Contractions in labor frequently start in the back and move to the front.

The abdomen can feel tight during a contraction. If this is the first time you are giving birth, you may worry that you are. Every first-time mom-to-be wants to know, what does early labor feel like? Contractions during the latent phase of labor can feel like strong tightening or squeezing in your belly and could be super-painful or just a little uncomfortable, Greves says. “It depends on the woman,” she says. “Everybody has a different pain threshold.”.

Early labor (also known as the latent phase of labor) is usually still some time away from the actual birth. It helps your baby get into place for birth. During early labor you’ll start feeling.

It’s actually divided into two phases of its own — early labor (latent phase) and active labor. Early labor During early labor, your cervix dilates and effaces. You may feel some pain.

Sometimes early labor contractions are quite painful. If your labor is typical, however, your early contractions will be mild enough for you to talk through them and putter around the house, or even doze off between them. You may see a mucousy vaginal discharge. What to expect: Early labor will last approximately 8-12 hours.

Your cervix will efface and dilate to 4 cm. Contractions will last about 30-45 seconds, giving you 5-30 minutes of rest between contractions. Contractions are typically mild and somewhat irregular but become progressively stronger and more frequent. Prodromal labor is labor that starts and stops before fully active labor begins. It’s often called “false labor,” but this is a poor description.

Medical professionals recognize that the. What to Expect When You’re in the Latent (Early) Phase of Labor Medically reviewed by Valinda Riggins Nwadike, MD, MPH The latent phase of labor comes before the active labor. The first stage of labor is divided into three phases: latent, active, and transition. The first, the latent phase, is the longest and least intense.

During this phase, contractions become more.

  • So encouraging. 39 weeks pregnant and came home from the doc crying because I’m not dilated yet. I’ve been throwing up every day since week 9 and I just want to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This video gave me JUST THAT. Thank you!

  • Cringed when I saw you blow up the balloon. I had a balloon dilation to get me from 1 to 4cm with no epidural. I don’t think I’ll ever look at a balloon the same!��

  • I can so relate at this stage. Don’t know how long my preLabour will last, but I will go through the process with peace and rest. Its a precious time. Yes!

  • My husband overheard this video and when you said “losing your Mucus plug means that birth is imminent”. My husband said “well so does being pregnant. You gotta give birth at some point.” ������ so funny

  • I have a question: I had around 10 regular but very light period like cramps a few days ago and they were 9-13minutes apart we thought we were in labour but then it just stopped. Now three days later I’m feeling nothing but just really tired and achey? I’m 35 weeks pregnant and have been diagnosed withild cholestasis. What was that? Should i do something about it it just wait, I see my doc on a few days

  • I just had an appointment and my doctor checked me to see how far I was dilated. I’m 38 weeks and I am not dilated at all. He made me feel very discouraged and said that I wasn’t working hard enough to dilate. I walk about 20-30 minutes almost every day and do exercises as often as I can but it doesn’t seem to have done much.

  • I have GD and I’m so scared that they won’t give me a chance to give birth naturally and they’ll push me to do a c section faster than other women without
    GD:(

  • I’m 36+2 now and I have a membrane sweep next Tuesday 37+3 so will be asking all these question then to see how favourable I am as I’m being induced on the 16th December due to severe pelvic girdle pain but I can already feel my body making lots of changes at this point which is nice and promising �� so I just want to say thank you I’m also loving your meditation videos to just recenter my emotions and feeling and connect with my baby x

  • I’m currently 38 weeks pregnant and have been dilated at 2 cm since 36 weeks. I had a natural delivery with my son, but have been nervous for some reason with baby #2. I don’t know why because honestly it was everything I hoped it would be with my son. I guess I’m scared I won’t be so lucky this time! But, your videos are so helpful in calming me and reminding me that I can do this again.

  • I feel like I’m never going to have my baby I haven’t been having any contractions that I could say for sure only period like light cramps. I have been 3cm and 100% effaced for almost 2 weeks now and I’m showing no signs this is progressing any �� but your video was great ��

  • Do you have a video talking about Discharge during pregnancy 2-3rd trimester? Discussing what’s normal and when to grow concern. Currently discharging lots of discharge with the consistency of white/stringy and thick, but sometime extremely wet and slimy…..

  • This is important to talk about because docs will use this as an excuse to say “failure to progress” and then you’re on the route to a c section

  • I usually lose my mucas plug first and go into labor anywhere between 6-10 hours later. I’ve experienced seeing the whole thing at one time and also only a small amount. Enough to know when to call my midwife to let her know. I’m overdue right now with my 4th baby and still waiting for it!

  • The moment my mucus plug fell,water broke and baby was out within 30 minutes after,so I think things are different with everyone, Because I was thinking it’s early labor,if not for hubby who insisted we go to the hospital am sure I would have delivered at home

  • Love from Malaysia for you Bridget! I’m hoping my vbac will be natural n gentle Birth-EDD on 24th Jan 2020. Love all your videos, I’m downloading it and watching it everyday. It’s really empowering and educate me. Thank you. Love and hugs for you!!
