Am I In Labor Help Please

Confused/Frightened - August 9

I am pregnant with my second child, right at 39 weeks. The thing is, with my son I knew I was in labor because my water broke, my plug came out, and my contractions started all at once. I am confused with this child though. I am having sharp pains that are constant when I am laying down. When I sit up the pains are all around the pelvic bone area. I can't sleep at night and I have been this way for all weekend! I know some people say Braxton Hicks contractions become painful during the last part of pregnancy, but I never even had those with my son. I am pretty confused and my mother says she doesn't remember enough to give me sound judgement. Please help! :(

I was havng what I thought were braxton hicks the other night so I looked up info on it. According to the website braxtron hicks are a pain that is centered in your lower abdome. And actual contractions are more in the center area of you belly and the pain of them will radiate around to your back. Don't be scared though. At 39 weeks your baby will be perfectly healthy when born. Go ahead and call your doc though, it will make you feel better.
