    Everyone worries about this hon. If you are lucky, your waters will break, so you will know for sure! Otherwise contractions will start, and will get more and more frequent over time, getting more painful and lasting longer. Its hard to explain how they feel, mine started in my back and spread to my bum and tummy, and felt like a tightening.


    It might take an hour or two until you know for sure, as sometimes you can get contractions that start an stop.

    I always worried about that lol but my waters broke at home. Soon after I started getting back pains which grew in strength to the point I couldnt bare to be near or talk to anyone. I always thought the pains spread to your front but mine were all in my back not even a twinge in my front. The one thing I wished I had got ready close by was a hot water bottle. I forgot where ours had gone and had to search high and low for it with my contractions lol not nice. It was the only thing that kind of numbed the pain. :hug:
