  • Trust me, you will KNOW when you have contractions that are labor.. they stop you in your tracks and make it hard to do anything but stand there in pain and they dont stop.

  • Could be Braxton Hicks. You can call your doctor's office to let them know. They'll give you more definite answers.

  • It could be just braxton hicks contractions, try walking around, laying on your left hand side and drink tons of water. You are suppose to call your doctor if you have more than FOUR contractions in one hour, no matter what kind of contraction it is. :) Good luck.

  • I agree w/ you will KNOW when real labor starts b/c it doesn't feel pleasant. Besides as long as you have a normal pregnancy, its more comfortable to labor at home as much as you can then to labor in a hospital.
