im having some good contractions. last about a min, strong ones, the kind that make decent "hills"  when they are monitoring you.

but they are spaced out 7-10 min apart. i am reclined in the recliner, and have had 5  strong contractions in the last half hour or so.

how do i know if its the real deal?

     damn, I didn't even know you were pregnant!

    Go lay down on your side and see if they go away.

    If you can't talk through them, go in.

    Is this your first?

    Walking would probably help more.
    Good luck. Sounds like baby on the way soon

    Let them get closer and stronger. How long are your contractions lasting? As they get closer, they should last longer and get more intense.

    Drink a few big glasses of water and lay down for an hour, making sure to time the contractions. If they get closer, remain steady, or your water breaks, go to the hospital, if not, it's not time yet.

    You will know once they get so painful you can't talk through them.

    How far along are you?

    Drink some cold water and lay on your left side - see if the contractions slow down.

    Quoting BeAmour:

     damn, I didn't even know you were pregnant!

    Go lay down on your side and see if they go away.

    If you can't talk through them, go in.
