  • You'll feel the change. Some women always have a hard tummy while pregnant (I did). The way I knew I was having a contraction was whem I'd inhale, I wouldn't be able to take in as much breath as I was a minute ago. :)

  • I had the same problem but you'll know. Your stomach may be hard but you'll still be able to feel it getting tight like someones squeezing on it. there will probably be sharp pains as well. i also agree with breathing as well.
