  • you get checked. .
    when you contract it helps you dilate.so if your contracting rgularly chances are u r dilating. the only way to know is to go get check tho.

  • You don't. Just follow your OB's instructions of when to go to the hospital.

  • you don't know, and you don't need to get checked. just go about your daily life and when you have contractions a few minutes apart for an hour or so, you can go to the hospital if you like =) gl!!
