I'm 38 weeks with my first but had "real contractions" after a car accident 10 weeks ago that luckily were stopped. If you are experiencing Braxton Hicks (BH, practice contractions) your entire stomach gets really hard and kinda uncomfy but not really painful. Real contractions are similar in that your stomach gets really hard, but you feel like you are having cramps with the tightening, like you are about to start your period or have really bad stomach ache. Usually you can't walk or talk as easily through them.

My doctor says the best way to determine if they are real contractions or BH is to drink a lot of water, take a shower and lie down. If they go away it is BH, if they don't they are real contractions.
