I just was wondering, when you finally when into labour, how did your contractions first start out? Small pressure that gradually increase? Lower back pain that slowly got worse? How long did it take for them to hurt?
how do i know when i got a contraction or is other kind of pain because since i got preg its been normal for me having pain since the start
How do you calculate them or pay attention to how far along they are . Ftm,, 39+5 && i get Braxton Hicks occasionally but i want to be prepared for the real deal especially at this point.

How Do You Know Your Having contraction Where is the Pain At ??
Yahh that sounds like them! Just keep an eye on them though just in case they do start turning into the real deal :) how far along are you?
I don't know when I'm having contractions either! I just have cramping like I'm about to start, plus back pain. They say that you will know when you're in labor, but I'm so afraid I won't. Some women in my family didn't even know when they were in labor until it was too late to get the epidural.
Contractions are contractions its when they start to form patterns and are consistent u know its true labor. I agree with the first comment. Personally I can do without the prep of braxton hicks I want the labor to start and I be done with it all.

How exactly do you time contractions? Ive been having contractions since last night. i Left my bfs house and had two really really painful contractions but they stopped. Today we went to target, which practically killed me, and i had a couple of contractions there. that was earlier today and they stopped. then i woke up from my nap and had 1 long painful contraction. i dont kno wheter its real or not. im 38 weeks. i heard your whole uterus balls up...and it has.
Im 37 weeks i dnt no how to tell when to go into the hospital wit my 1st it was easy because my water broke..but today i was feeling a like a sharp pain on my left side the pain would only last like a min..how long does the pain suppose to last. Because i no it suppose to be 5 min apart does the pain last 5min to.
-) of course if they become painful and start to be able to time them and become more like contractions then time for an hr if 3-5 mins apart go to l&d :-) but if they are coming and going then most likely false labor.
30 in agonizing pain. Now having regular hard contractions. Haven't timed them yet. I'm fixing to do that now. Bit my pain on a scale to 1-10 is a 9, would be a 10 if I knew it wouldnt get worse. Thinking tonight may be the night. Idk how woman "breathe" through them. It hurts so bad. My question is, at what point should I go to L&D?
I'm not to sure they say people get confused between Braxton hicks and contractions so I'm Guessing so but don't take me word on that.
I feel so stupid asking this...but what do contractions feel like? Im 27 weeks preganant today and just entered my 3rd trimester and realized I dont know what im doing or what tp expect and my son will be here before I know it.
Sounds like they may be the start of contractions/labor for you. What instructions did your doctor give you for checking in? Usually contractions lasting for so long, so far apart, regular, etc... Have they stopped now? If your doc didn't give you instructions, I would call (tonight if they come back) first thing in the morning to find out what you need to do. I'll be asking my doc when I see him next since it's been so long since I had my last little one. Good luck!!!
