  • If you are dehydrated, you can feel crampy contractions sometimes. Drink a couple glasses of water and lie on your left side for a while and see if they go away or if they get stronger and more regular.

  • They'll get closer together and longer, I'd like to say you'll just know but some women don't... if you feel lots of pressure down there and have the urge to push.. but your probably just having BH your body needs the practice

  • Drink more water and get up and walk around, if they stay the same then its probably labor
