Is it Prodomal Labor?

I've been experiencing contractions and recorded them so I would know if I'm in the first stage of labor or not. I noticed that my tummy is kinda painful a little bit so I was massaging my tummy while surfing the net. I am trying to ignore the contractions coz it's not really that painful yet and so I thought I better get up, do something and see if the contraction or pain will go away. I had a snack first coz I was a little hungry then I wash the dishes and clean the kitchen. Here's what Prodomal Labor means.

Prodomal Labor:

* The cervix begins to soften, thin and move forward, and it may begin to open. The baby settles into the pelvis.

* Contractions may be noticeable as an achy sensation or pressure in the lower abdomen or back. Contractions in this phase are usually irregular - starting and stopping, strong or mild. This is your body's natural way of gearing up.

* This phase can last from a few hours to a few days.

* Don't worry whether or not this is really labor. For the vast majority, labor eventually makes itself very clear.

* Try to be patient and have confidence that your body is doing exactly what it needs to do.

* Take good care of yourself. Eat, drink plenty of fluids, rest, or take a walk.

* Surround yourself with people who can help you feel comfortable and safe. Your support team can keep you company and provide reassurance.
