Cramping on my right side like constantly feels like. Pain in groin area and pelvic and hardening stomach plus back aches. I'm 4cm dilated already. I have no idea what to expect honestly. My water broke with ds1. I just want to make it into the hospital lol.

Being dilated already I would go In and at least get checked. 


I had a false alarm Thursday and they sent me home because  they weren't consistent or strong. I don't know how to time them lol

Use a stopwatch like the one on your phone, time from when the pain stops till the pain begins again, that tells you how long in between. You can also right down how long the last also. Look for consistency and becoming more intense.

Also if probably just go in since you were dilated at a 4 already

I only went into labor once naturally out of the three times. It was with my last dd. I had no idea what to expect so when I woke up just feeling off with constant lower back pain I didn't think much of it-thought I slept wrong. Well skip to a few hours later, the pain didn't go away and my legs started to swell bad. I went in for that only to discover I was have consistent contractions that were reading 100+ on the machine, I was 6 almost 7 cm dilated and my waters were buldging-i was scheduled for a repeat c section and everyone was rushing to get me into the OR. My husband was still at work and just made it.
My point to this long post is you should go get checked.

Make sure you're drinking at least 64 oz of water a day. If you're not, the contractions will likely be so annoying!
