Thanks for posting your query.
There are two stages of labour-
At present you are in latent stage of labour.
are used to dilate the cervix
,but these should be used under supervision of your gynaecologist.
As you are in latent stage of labour,you are not having true labour pains.
True labour pains start from back & radiate towards front of your abdomen & thigh.
When you will enter in active stage means 3 cm dilatation of cervix,dilatation will be fast & pains will be severe in intensity.
