I'm 36 weeks pregnant with our second child. I don't remember exactly how contractions feel but they didn't feel like this! How would I know if the contractions I'm having are real and not Braxton- Hicks? According to my doctor, what I'm having are Braxton-Hicks and she told me that if I'm having 4 to 5 contractions in an hour then I need to go to the hospital. The most I get are 3 in an hour and they aren't consistant but I'm just curious how I could tell the difference between the two since we live about an hour away from the hospital depending on traffic.
