Pregnant Women Reveal The Pain Of False Labor

As your due date approaches, you begin to feel irregular and unpredictable contractions in the uterine. The abdomen tightens as a way to prepare the body for the real labor.  Also known as Braxton Hicks contractions, ‘false’ labor can also be excruciatingly painful at times. Some pregnant women usually mistook this contraction as the ‘true’ labor. But there are several ways to differentiate a ‘false’ labor from the real one. Braxton Hicks contractions may subside when you change position or start an activity. True labor contractions progresses and persists no matter what you do. These women will share their experiences on how they dealt with the pain of false labor.

 

 

Keep calm, it’s only Braxton Hicks.

True labor is accompanied by a progressive dilation of the cervix, blood discharges, excruciating pain, and  stronger contractions occurring at regular intervals. In false labor, there is no progressive dilation of the cervix and no blood show. The pattern of contractions are unpredictable and pain can range from mild to intense.
