I am not sure if I am having contractions. The doctor said if I have them to go in, but I am not sure if I am or not.

They aren't coming on a set couple of minutes, but they keep coming. They hurt a lot. My stomach gets hard, and it hurts down in my area as well as my stomach. I know what round ligament pain feels like, that I have been having for a while, but this feels different. I lost my mucus plug about 2 weeks ago. If I eat, when these things come it makes me feel sick. I may not be having them, but if you can give me any advice on it I would appreciate it.

  • They don't always get regular... Mine never did. They were sporadic and would go 2mins-4mins-3mins-2mins-3mins... Did that even as I was pushing, lol.

    If it gets to where you have to stop what you're doing through the contractions, then it sounds like labor to me.

    Good luck.

  • Time them. See how long they last and how close they are. Try resting and drinking some water to see if they go away. If at 2 hours of relaxing and switching positions they are still there and just as strong your probably in labor. Wait until they are 5 minutes apart depending on the distance to the hospital. At 5 minutes get things ready to go.

  • I have drank water and they have been going on for a couple of days now. I am just not sure if they are contractions or if the baby is just doing something in there.
