  • Unfortunately, the best advice I have is that you will know when it is real. I was told that my whole pregnancy and thought "Yeah right!" But in the end, I just knew. I'd call it mommy intuition.

  • What you can do is go lay down then place your hand on your abdoman (this way you know when your belly is getting hard) then every time you feel a contraction right down the time and how long it lasts. Do this for an hour if you have more than 4 then call your doctor and let them know if not then just keep waiting.
