Labor signs can be very distinct for pregnant women. It is not possible to know what causes labor to start or when exactly it will start, but changes that indicate the beginning of labor include:

  • lightening,
  • passing of the mucus plug,
  • contractions,
  • breaking the bag of water, and
  • effacement and dilation of the cervix.
