I just knew. I woke up feeling different and knew it was coming. Then contractions started and they just felt like the real thing. This pregnancy I've had contractions 2 minutes apart an hour at a time a few times. But I just knew they weren't the real thing.

Same here.

1st-I didn't know I was in labor. I was sure I wasn't. Lol my side was cramping a little but not alot. Family made me call doctor then go to hospital. I didnt feel any contractions until I was 8cm and my water was broken.
2-I had been having contraction every 7mims for over 48hrs and I woke up on Friday morning and had bloody show and just knew it was time to go to the hospital. Real painful contractions start when I got to the hospital and she was born 4hrs later.

1st my water broke and 10 mins later labor started.

2nd woke up to contractions at 1:17am. They got stronger and closer together.

3rd - I had false labor 5 times. But when labor hit. It hit hard and fast.

With my first I just knew...  the contractions were strong and just got closer and closer.  The pain got worse.  Of course, when I got there they didn't believe me because I was so calm.  Then they got me all hooked up and were like you are in labor.  I was like no shit.  Anyway, you'll know. :)
