Labor pain is generally believed to be part of the childbirth process. According to Parents, the main reason for this pain is that the uterus, a muscular organ, has to contract intensely to squeeze out the baby.
However, many women may experience a different type of pregnancy-related discomfort which is known as false labor. According to American Pregnancy, the technical name for this are Braxton Hicks contractions and they become more frequent as a woman gets closer to term.
These contractions are usually irregular and unpredictable. But one major way to differentiate it from the real thing is that there's no progression of labor.
