they felt alot like period cramps for me... if you are concerned you should talk to your doctor, they should be able to help.

well some women have Braxton Hicks contractions.....you feel the pressure and you can even see your tummy \"flex\" but real contractions start like period cramps and some women get alot of back pain with them.....most babies dont just \"fly out\" even if your water breaks before you get to the hospital you should be fine :) alot of women (myself included) dont experience their water breaking at home or out in public. Alot of times your doctor will do it after you have dialated a little bit and when they know for sure that you are having the baby. I would talk to your doctor and ask for a detailed description of what labor and delivery has in store so that you are more prepared :) hope that helps....Meg

Could just be braxton-hicks. Your still ok even after your water breaks, it doesn't always happen at the hospital.(Unless your induced) ;D You know when the contractions start getting regular you should consider going. But if your contractions aren't close enough yet, they might send you back home until they are. Your case may be different tho. I am NO doctor, this is a TV educated guess, lol.

You should know contractions if they are real.Its just an instinct.
Could it be Braxton Hicks? Are you getting the tightening of the stomach? I'm 33 weeks and have had some weird pains that i never had with my first. I hope all goes well and baby hides in here a little longer for you
