Considering I didn't have any BH contractions with DD and all my "real" contraction felt like gas and after my water broke it was a very out of body experience.... HOW THE HECK AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHATS GOING ON?
Every time I stand up I get really tight and it kind of hurts down where my scar is this last for 30-45 seconds. This is just a BH right?
How do you know when it's REAL?!
Among my birth protector friends, we like to say you will know it's more than BH when they are longer, stronger and closer together. Plus, the contractions radiate up from the bottom of the uterus to the top and take over your whole abdomen. They are not just lower. They do not go away with baths, lying down, hydrating, etc. They keep getting longer, stronger and closer together instead.
Is that helpful? Is that what others have found to be true?
