okay, I know like every freakin person asks this question.
BUT. im gonna ask anyways =]

my stomach has been like tightening up like rock hard pretty often. And so Im guessing that is my stomach contracting?..anyways. They dont hurt at all! If it starts doing it every couple minutes with NO PAIN is that labor??? Ah this is so confusing!

its braxton hicks contractions, but if you have alot and they dont stop for a couple hours then you should take a shower and call the doctor.

It is real contractions, just not the labor ones. When its the real thing you'll know it. If you're looking to go natural the best thing is to stay home as long as you can anyways. Time them a little but don't worry too much about them unless you're getting them every couple of minutes foran hour.

It sounds like Bh but if they keep going on like this you might as well go in because they can dilate you (not all the way to 10 just more)
