yup.. that's the question!
I'm almost 38 weeks, just got done eating about a dozen hot wings, have BAD lower back pains, getting some period like cramps, and energetic right now....
So, how will I know if I'm actually in labor? I've had false labor SO many times, im sick of being sent home for nothing.

hmm..Time your contractions...If they are at a steady, consistent time apart it's a good sign you are..False contractions are usually sporadic and random whereas real labor contractions seem to be at a steady time apart...Say if you time your contractions and you're getting them almost exactly 20 minutes apart at a steady pace they will start doing that then they will get closer and closer..15 minutes apart, 10 minutes apart, 5 minutes apart etc..The closer they get, it's time to go to the hospital! I'd say if they are almost exactly 10 minutes apart then go to the hospital..If you aren't having stead contractions it's probably braxton hicks.
