  • Real contractions feel like a ton of things all at once. Bad cramps, gas pains, pressure, back pain and everything else. If they are getting closer and stronger and not going away if you lay down for 2 hours then its possibly real labor. Braxton hicks can also cause a ton of pressure depending on how the baby is laying. Real ones will increase and become stronger to the point you cant talk or anything all you can do is breathe.
