This is my second, never knew I was in labor with him till 4 hours before I gave birth to him, that was 14 years ago.When I got to the hospital with him I was only dialated 1cm 4 hours later I had him 10days early.Thursday I went to the doctor, I was 1 cm dialated, 50%effaced, my blood pressure was off for the first time and the babie's heart beat was faster than normal. Today ever 12 minutes my stomach tightens up and I can not breath and definetly cant walk I am so out of breath. Is this it I excpected to be in pain with contractions. My water never broke with my first.

Sounds like contractions to me. Is your whole stomach is getting hard and they are at regular intervals? Everything I've read says that those are contractions, my OB/GYN sd to call him when the are 5-7 minutes apart. Good luck!! Sounds like your gonna have a baby before long!! Keep us posted!

It could just be Braxton Hicks contractions if there is no pain involved. Real contractions usually start with back pain that radiates to your belly. My contractions were definitely painful with my first child. Even now the BH contractions are becoming painful. I wouldn't rush off to the hospital just yet. I would however call your OB to see what they say. Good Luck
