  • Start timing while you lay on your left side and drink some water. If they are consistent and getting closer together then probably labor.

  • well, my doc always said that if they are true contractions, changingposition wont affect them or thier timing. but braxton hicks contractions can stop, slow or change when you move. get up and walk around for a while, if they are still consistent and getting stronger, then it is most likely labor.
