  • When you drink a bunch of water and lay down does the pain continue? If it does it could be labor, just time the contractions they length in between them and how long each one lasts, don't go to the hospital until they are 3 minutes apart and 45 second long, or if your water breaks. You will lose the plug and have a bloody show before you need to go. Good luck.

  • if it comes and goes, but not like every few minutes, it is probably braxton hicks, which can go on for weeks. gl!
