My Doctor keeps saying if you feel tightening in your stomach count the minutes between them... But throughout my pregnancy Ive never felt so much as a Braxton hicks. My mom said she never felt anything in her stomach either it was all in her back. Ive been having a lot of back pain and pressure but my OB just rights it off and says wait for the tightening... If my Mom never felt it. I know its possible for me not to feel it. So how do I know if im in labor then? I went to the Hospital for the back pain and they said my cervix was thinning but still thick and I was dilated to a one. So obviously something is happening. Any input?Answer Question

the tightening of your belly your doc describes I believe means when you feel it, you WILL know. It will be an intense tightening or similar. Mine was mostly in my back, but when in actual labor, I had to pee every 5 minutes. My cats followed me (they knew I was pregnant BEFORE I took the test) and they were very concerned for me. The peeing part, that was intense. I'd sit (after tripping on the cats, of course) and nothing. It just felt like I had to pee. Good Luck and don't worry! You will be fine!
