This stage typically includes early labour, active labour and transition to the second stage of labour. In the early labour stage, you can still walk around and do your chores, however as soon as the frequency intensifies, active labour begins, wherein, talking becomes hard, contractions increase and your water might break. After this, you transition into the 2nd stage, which involves trembles, hot and cold flashes, painful contractions and sweating.
