Re: Hard stomach?
Because I am overly cautious, I would call the doctor just to be certain. Or go in just to be checked. It 's always best to be cautious, I learned the hard way. If they do regulate, as the other poster said, you need to be seen right away, as it could be preterm labor. Especially if you start to feel any backache. But, I say please call. Also, make sure you are well hydrated. sometimes first time labors can be rather painless and unassuming. I would rather you be overly cautious. And please, if the doctors office receptionist says oh its nothing, don't take her word (again, I learned the hard way). Leave a message strictly for the doctor. Good luck.
