  • When you go into labor, you will know. Squeezing with some discomfort are just braxton hicks, some even hurt a little. Trust me when you are in real labor it doesn't stop and it gets really intense. Try not to focus on every little twinge and pull your body does because you'll go nuts. You have eight weeks left. Enjoy it!
