Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

it sounds like you may just be having Braxton-Hicks contractions, which are basically practice contractions. When you have real ones and are in labor, you will definitely know it. B-H contractions can often come with no pain or discomfort. The only way I know when I'm having them is because it gets a little hard to breathe and it feels like everything in my torso is tightening. Some women have a lot of pain and discomfort with them, others never feel them at all.The only time you really need to worry about contractions is when they're painful, your water has broken and/or your cervix is dilated. If the hospital keeps sending you home you're fine and there's nothing to worry about.
