Not always. My first was obvious. My 2nd I thought I was having braxton hicks b/c they were sporadic. I kept having the urge to pee (like every 15 minutes) and I felt I was peeing my pants, but I wasn't. A nurse friend of mine suggested I was leaking ambiotic fluidds and thought it wise I get checked out. Sure enough I was in labor. If in doubt, get checked. Better safe than sorry.
