with my first there was no question. I went from 0-60 right away. It was pretty obvious. Felt like strong BH with radiating pain around back
Second, I thought I was having constipation pain until I realized they were coming at regular intervals. I didn't really question that it was "real" labor once I realized that. Felt like a blow torch to the lower back lol
Third I had several days of stop-start labor before the real thing, so it was a little harder to tell. Felt like a burning sensation that went from groin to the top of my uterus and then spread around to my back.
I think with pre-term labor I would get checked out anytime I noticed regularly spaced contractions for more than an hour or two.
