15There May Be A Lot Of False Starts
After about 40 weeks of anxiously awaiting for the grand event to begin, many mamas-to-be have a bit of a hard time figuring out when it is show time.
When you have been counting kicks and paying attention to every ache and pain, you could find yourself running to the hospital
only to find out that you have a case of indigestion.
Some women feel contractions for weeks before labor actually begins. They are called Braxton Hick contractions, and they often feel like menstrual cramps.
The way to tell that they are Braxton Hicks is to when they don't happen at regular intervals and they don't feel stronger over time. Usually, they go away when you rest or take a walk.
Taking a walk can also start kick-start the real thing, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to get on your walking shows when the first signs of labor kick in.
