What Are the Symptoms of Preterm Labor?

Even if you don't have any known risks, you should contact your doctor or nurse-midwife if you have any of the warning signs of preterm labor, which can include:1

  • Contractions (your abdomen tightens like a fist) every 10 minutes, or more often
  • Change in vaginal discharge (leaking fluid or bleeding from your vagina)
  • Pelvic pressure — the feeling that your baby is pushing down
  • Low, dull backache
  • Cramps that feel like your period
  • Abdominal cramps, with or without diarrhea

You should also not hesitate to share any other concerns you may have with your doctor or nurse-midwife.
