  • They feel a lot like the false ones. You're stomach gets real tight and you hurt but the pressure and pain will probably be stronger with real contractions.

  • Ok, how far along are you? Watch to see if you lose your mucus plug and go in if they start to get like 15 minutes apart.

  • how far along are you? if they come every say 15 minutes then its probably real labor so go to the hospital they will evaluate you check if your dilating ect.. if your not they'll tell you to go home.

  • I see. Is this your first? Are you getting the tight feeling and pressure often? 6 an hour?

  • You're far enough along that this could be labor. It wouldn't hurt to go in and get checked. All they'll do is keep you or send you home. Go prepared just in case. Good luck, you'll be fine.
