Hi elif2013
I hope you get lots of replies! Basically yes there are patterns but there again everyone is different and so is every pregnancy and delivery. Don't try to predict just be prepared and 'go with the flow'. Your subconscious brain is running this particular show and will appreciate your conscious cooperation so listen to its messages re breathing, drinking water - anything! I found that being 'in the now' or mindfulness is really useful. Thinking of you! star
