So I told my doctor I was worried I wouldn't know if I was in "real" labor after all these episodes of preterm labor. She assured me I would know. Yesterday I had mild cramps/contractions sporadically. Today, they started out that way and now I am not sure what to think. Sometimes they feel like real contractions that are slightly painful, sometimes my whole belly gets hard and it feels more like a cramp, and then sometimes all I feel is radiating pain going through my back. I am so uncomfortable, but then again it doesn't feel like real labor. I just knew with DS and could time them, but I don't feel like that this time. Either way, something is going on. Oh and I have had bowel movements 7 times since yesterday morning. I wish someone could feel what I feel and tell me what they think, lol.
