you won't know until someone trained checks for you. Usually during one of your last dr check ups or in hospital on the 'big day'. I would think it'll take more than one contraction to get you dilating though, the first stage is a long process.
I was admitted to hospital last week Thursday for strong contractions
but that one was difrent it was as if something was tearing apart. and the whole time it feels like some one is stabing me with a knive from below
I would just try to time the contractions. If they increase in intensitiy and get closer together, I would call your doc. Try laying down and taking a warm (not hot) bath. This may help. If it doesn't, I would def call your doc. You are getting close and it could happen at any time now.
