Im 38 weeks pregnant with my first baby boy and I know my body is having contractions but I dont always feel them and when I do get pains I am not sure if they are contractions or just regular pains. Im so worried I wont know when its time to go to the hospital.
Eeveryone keeps telling me contractions feel like period cramps but I dont get pains that feel like that. I get back pains and some sharp pains going through my stomach but nothing that feels like a period cramp.
How do I tell the difference between all these pains?
