Dad's Signs of Labor

So here is what I found when I got nervous about an impending baby delivery...


"Another labor sign to be aware of is that when you go to the bathroom, you may notice mucus on the toilet paper. This may appear as the mucus plug starts to dissolve from the cervix. You may also notice some bloody show which is mucus tinged with blood. As labor progresses, you will have more and more "bloody show" as tiny capillaries in the cervix break as it dilates.

Flu-like symptoms, including mild nausea and diarrhea, are yet another sign that labor may be imminent. You may feel a low backache that comes and goes, or you may feel like you are having menstrual cramps. An increase in contractions, whether painful or not, is another sign that labor may be starting."


I am an experienced father, so let me explain somethings here...
The mild nausea and diarrhea are right on. I don't think the bloody show applies in my case, nor the mucus plug...I don't even know where my cervix is! As far as the backache- definitely the tension I feel has increased the backache. They didn't mention the racing heart, nervous feelings, rambling, checking and re-checking the bag for the hospital, dry mouth, or constant pacing while asking JA "how are you feeling".

As far as JA's signs that labor may be starting, I guess I need to look that up on the internet as well.
