My due date is Nov 8. On monday, I went to my doctor, she checked me and I'm already 4cm dilated... but I haven't been feeling any contractions or anything.... she said when the top of my belly gets hard sometimes, that is a contraction and to time it but I've noticed that the top of my belly is constantly hard... I thought it would feel like I'm cramping, from my lower back and the pain would move towards the front and then all over my belly. Is there other ways to tell if its a contraction?
