  • you will feel tight pain in your belly and it is intense. it hurts real bad. it will radiate to your legs and sometmes you will have back pain. but you will for sure know when you are in labor..

  • I was in your place almost 2 months ago. I didn't know what to look for because i never experienced the braxton hicks contractions until like the day before i went into labor. people kept telling me i will know(I hated that answer. lol) but it's true you will know. it felt like mentral cramps that was squeezing tighter and tighter around my back and abdomen area.
