This is the when will I go into labor quiz. It’s going to tell you signs of labor, predictors, possibilities of preterm labor, and early labor signs from an L&D RN.
When WILL I go into labor is something everyone asks. I will admit that this post is no labor predictor (because nothing can truly do that) but this quick will give you some signs of labor, and maybe a little predicton for when the big day will happen!
When will I go into labor?
I’ve so been there. My mom wondered when to book her plane ticket. I mean “it’s my job” to know when ladies will go into labor. Turns out, it’s not. 😉 I think only mother nature knows that one. 😉
Am I in labor?
A lot of you might be wondering “how do I know if I’m in labor” — don’t forget I have a whole page called Am In Labor that goes into all of this a whole lot more. Be sure to check it out!
How did I create this labor predictor?

Once you answer them all, click submit — and then see your score. You’ll see your score as well as what you should be watching for!
There are 58 points possible — so, the higher you are — the more likely you are to either be IN labor, or to be headed there soon. Of course, labor can change quickly — at any minute your water could break (which adds 30 points to your total). 🙂
Looks like you still have some serious questions about labor?
A prenatal class is SO important to feel comfortable at your delivery. Both partners really need to take one.
That’s why I recommend this bestselling prenatal class. It is quick, accurate and engaging (she doesn’t waste a minute of your time). I even wrangled a coupon code for Pulling Curls readers — PC10 will save you 10% on your course purchase.
Or, if you still wonder what a contraction feels like — I have a whole post about contractions — where I share the BoomLife Monitor.
