Hi!
If you were my patient, I would ask you to come in so that I could monitor you for a bit.  As a general rule, if you are wondering whether you might be in labor, you are not.  When the real thing hits there is no mistaking it.
Unfortunately, the latter part of pregnancy is not too great either!
Tylenol is OK to use, although it is like whistling in the wind.
Just keep telling yourself it WILL all end soon!
Good luck!

You dont neccesarily have to be in "active" labour for them to be that intense, but you could be in labour. Monitor your contractions and if they are frequent enough call the hospital and get checked out xx
