From the stickie above:
* Generally tighten only portions of the uterus, rarely with back pressure
* Usually with short duration (15-45 seconds)
* Do not increase in intensity
* May not become closer together
* Usually irregular in occurence
* Changing activity or position may make them stop
* walking does not make them stronger

I'm with you. My "real" contractions met a lot of the rules for "pre-labor" contractions (irregular and only felt in one part of my uterus) and a lot of my "pre-labor" contractions met the rules for "real" ones (lasting longer than a minute, closer than 5-minutes apart, for more than an hour).

But I was able to tell that the "pre-labor" ones weren't "real" and I was able to suspect that the "real" ones were early labor instead of more "pre-labor". I had bloody show at the start of early labor, and that was probably my biggest clue.
