Avatar f tn Yeah ^ they're a lot worse than <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>period</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> cramps. But the pain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> still manageable. at least for me. I waited at home till I was 9cm and went to hospital had my baby within an hour. I didn't want meds and the pain wasn't that bad for meds anyway. But could feel differently for everyone else.
Avatar f tn Try not to worry. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>contr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ctions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> feel like <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>period</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> pains but they start off mild, gradually get stronger and then fade away again. The more an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> you get, the stronger they become. also if you place your hand on your tummy you can usually feel it harden during a contraction. Trust me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> I say you will know an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> it starts. Im on pregnancy number 5.

The last 2 days I have had than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> pinching like feeling in areas, pressure pretty low by my pubic bone, and some mild menstrual like cramps.
4842016 tn?1372042667 I've had <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>contr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ctions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> (went into labour prematurely @ 26 weeks) but I'm a ftm so I haven't been in full blown labour but my an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> felt like pressure, like bub was pushing out but all over my stomach, and I was having bad an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periodan> like cramps. But it may be different for everyone!
Avatar f tn Idk if ive been having <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>contr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ctions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> or just pains from being pregnant. My lower back has throbbing sharp pains during the day.. but its not an off an on thing. Its constant. and then at night, i get an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periodan> like cramps an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> i lay down. But an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> i sit up, they seem to go away. Im a ftm, and not really sure what to expect. Im being induced than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> Thursday. Does anyone think i should go to the hospital if it happens again tonight? I need opinions.
Avatar n tn I have never had that....I haved delivered 2 babies vaginally. Real <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>contr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ctions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> are exactly like menstrual pains...to the most. I somehow during my first pregnancy thought labor pains would be my ENTIRE tummy....it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> NOT. The an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> are down low, across the lower abdomen, and in the lower back...They feel like a really bad an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periodan>. The sharp pains in your breasts might be milk glands preparing for their duties....Hope that I helped...how far along are you?
Avatar n tn hi,im 20yrs old &amp; my an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periodan> was 7 weeks an 5 days late. finally it came last night(4-13-08) it started off light pinkan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>h color then in the morning it was reg.color now today i used the bathroom an a blood clot the size of a quater came out of me like a dark purple color! an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> sumthing wrong?i took 5 hpt an 1 blood test all neg. so i dont think its a man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>scarrige,im scrared.. please w/b.
Avatar f tn For me my an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> got close together and really intense. So much so that I couldn't talk during my <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>contr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ctions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> and had to force myself to breathe. Timing your an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> really the key, if you get them 3-5 mins apart for at least an hour and they are really intense then it might be baby time. It typically doesn't happen right after you use your plug. I went into labor weeks after I lost my plug.
Avatar f tn IM a first time mom so I am confused can someone please explain what I'm feeling? Its a kind of feeling in my lower stomach like if I'm about to start my <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>period</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> I get than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> SLIGHT PaIN feeling... I'm 37 weeks!
Avatar f tn I'm 39 weeks and have yet to feel one painful contraction, I'm really nervous that I'm not going to know an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> I'm in labor since I haven't felt anything painful yet, I don't even know what <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>contr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ctions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> are supposed to feel like other than the tightening I feel from Braxton Hicks. Or if I get painful an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan> and think I'm in labor then I get sent home because I'm not...
1023501 tn?1254836758 Well, I'm pretty sure they are <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>contr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ctions</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>.

Well, today, they are pretty strong. Everybody tells me they are an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractionsan>. anyway, my questions are: - How many am I supposed to get in an hour, - How aften are they supposed to happen, and - How long are they supposed to last?
