  • they say move around and if they are false they will quit... how far apart are they coming? call your doctor maybe and see what they say...

  • Keep timing your contractions. If they remain relatively consistant and they get stronger and closer together, you definitely could be in labor. My first contractions felt like bad period cramps.

  • time contractions...once they hit 5 min apart no matter how much they hurt its time to go
