  • have you drank plenty of water? dehydration can cause pain too.

    constant rock hardness is braxton hicks, not real contractions, those come and go.

  • Momma, call your doctor - it sounds like early labor - I've given birth 5 times, and had problems with early labor with 3 of them! Better safe than sorry - call your doc or go to L&D!

  • Go to the doctor, if you have been having real contractions for 3 hours, that's the time to go to the hospital. Even if it's false contractions, it's better to be safe.
