  • The best way I can explain it is when they are close together and so strong it takes your breath away. With both of my kids the labor was pretty much the same just a lot faster the second time. I would get up and walk as much as you can and if it starts to hurt to the point it makes you stop walking then those would be real contractions. Good luck.
