Labour pains start as a sharp pain in the lower tummy or back along with tightening of abdomen , the pains happen intermittently at intervals, they gradually increase in severity and become more frequent. The pain may also radiate to thigh or public area and it will not get relieved with rest. Labour pains may or may not be accompanied with a sticky or blood soaked or watery vaginal discharge. Sometimes , the water bag may break with labour pains, then thin watery fluid leaks from the vagina. If any of these symptoms happen, you should visit your doctor/ hospital promptly.
