I will probably think I'm in labor with any discomfort or pain I have !

A few minutes ago, I had a bad pain my my lower abdomen. It probably lasted a minute and had a definite start and stop. I don't know if I'd call it a menstrual cramp, but similar --sharper. I would have no idea if this was a contraction or just a normal pregnancy pain... I wish I wasn't such a noob when it comes to this stuff.

Hahahaha you and me both! Last night my stomach was "off". Then I started having cramps and lower back pain. To say I got my hopes up was an understatement.

There is no denying true labor. You will notice a distinctive pattern. And when in doubt ask us.

Haha. Glad I'm not the only one that does this. I hate that I have no idea what it's going to be like. I keep telling myself that, as Lyndsey has pointed out, I'll know when it's really happening.

I actually have my fingers crossed that my water breaks and I just know for sure. haha.

Lol. Toward the end there are tons of aches and discomforts. I agree with Lyndsay there is no denying true labor lol.

I think you replied to the wrong thread

I mean you could be like me and deny it until baby is crowing.

I've been having those menstrual type pains as well, I think they're just pregnancy pains, who knows. Oh and trust me, you'll know when you're having real contractions, they hurt a lot worse and feel different to period cramps.

I have had the lower pelvic pain. It is not like a contraction. It really hurt. The doctor told me it is just her head sitting on my pelvic area.
