Early labor signs: This may be the start of a complete change of life! Sounds like prodromal labor which may last 2 hours, 2 days, 2weeks. Try drinking a big glass of water and take two Tylenol (acetaminophen). If the cramping continues, gets worse, start bleeding or notice decrease fetal movement or a big gush of fluid contact your physician.
