I like to give my midwife a heads up if I'm feeling something different. She has to arrange childcare, etc so I figure earlier is better than too late. Typically if I have really regular contractions during the day I know it's the real deal. I have lots of prodromal labor but usually it starts at night and then tapers off by morning. There comes a point in labor where I just feel like I need my birth team there. Early labor I like to keep busy and hang out with the family, but when I get into active labor I want my birth team there.
