In about 38.33 % (340) deliveries, we could record the exact time of uterine contractions' onset. Labour which occurred due to uterine contraction started between two and five o'clock in the morning. A total of 397 deliveries happened from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m., during which 49.2% (311) deliveries happened between 2 a.m and 8 a.m. Conclusion: The demonstration of diurnal rhythm is in preterm labours. From 2 a.m. to 5 a.m, the majority of the contractions started and the deliveries mostly occurred from 2 a.m. to 8 a.m. Keywords: Preterm Labour, Preterm Delivery, Transvaginal Ultrasonographic Scanning (TVUSS), Diurnal Rhythm, Home Uterine Activity Monitoring (HUAM), Fetal Fibronectin (FFN).
