So today I was perfectly fine, as soon as I got to work I have this very bad back pain and like my thighs hurt so bad. They feel sore but I haven't done anything? And I am having such bad gas haha (sorry) I'm 36+4 I was wondering if the back pain was a sign of anything?
I know it sounds dumb. But out of no where i got nauseous and i feel like i have a fever && i got this pain in my lower back. At first i thought they were gas. They feel like i have gas, but i try to fart and nothing. I sat on the toilet for a good five minutes and nothing came out. I dk if i ate something bad or something since I'm starting to get chills even though I'm bundled up. I'm 40w 4d. I have a feelin its gas since i can hear my tummy rumbling.
Do they feel like bad period cramps or really bad gas passing or something completely different?
Skin stretching- usually itchy and taught, but your belly underneath is not tightening up 3). Gas cramps S U C K! It feels like contractions, but again--- no tightening. You'll feel relief when the gas comes out. 4). Period cramps- well if you're pregnant you won't have these 5). BH contractions- tightening of the belly, usually the low side. Real contractions will cause your entire belly to tighten into a tight, tight ball. These can be uncomfortable, painful or not even noticeable! 6).
For the women that gave birth already what does contractions feel like? Some people say it hurts like bad menstrual cramps but I never had menstrual cramps. Is there something else to compare it to so I'm prepared?
Contractions feel like very bad period cramps. As for me tho I never had period cramps so the doc explained it like a really bad upset stomach I have to poop feeling.

I'm a second time mom, but never felt contractions with my first. I've got this pain that feels like I have bad gas, but it won't break down (fart), but it will get more intense every couple minutes or so. Nothing I'm concerned or paniced about, just curious to if this could be what contractions feel like. I'm 35wks today.

I just wanted to add that you can have contractions that feel like they are in your lower back. I never had anything like period cramps with my two. It was always in my lower back. Just so you're aware it can be different.
Hi I am only 31 weeks tomorrow and i have been having like cramping and i do not know if i am having contractions or gas pain? i feel like i need to go to the bathroom but i can't when i had my last nonstress test there were small bumps on the contraction line but i didnt feel most of them and the dr would not see me after the test. i feel like i get crampy for a few minutes then it goes away but i dont think my stomach is getting harder it always feels hard.
the pain will be you just dont know what to do with yourself type pain and take your breath away. have gas and air as soon as you get there that will take the edge off them and make you feel like you are floating just remembre to breath in and out slowly with the tube in your mouth as it gets into your system quicker then! are you gonna see how it goes or go for epidural? i could never bring myself to have one hate the thought of a needle in my back.
I have noticed that when I have gas moving around, I often feel that my heart may skip, or when I am laying down a spasm may occur near my heart with no pain but gives the feel of a slight skip. Though I have a heart murmur, I was tested and have no heart disease. Can gas cause this skiping sensation in the heart, or by pushing against the heart actually cause a skip, I heard this is posiable. If so what can I so to lesson the gas and the skipping or spasm sensation?
When I had contractions with my daughter, they felt like gas pains and constipation and the pain was unbearable before I realized what they were and timed them.

Can somebody tell me what contractions feel like I keep getting pains in my upper stomach but I'm not sure if it's Contractions or not
I also started feeling.g like I was having contractions. After awhile, the pain started to go but I had more contractions. I thought I was losing the baby. No bleeding though. Today, I feel better but have had a few sharp pains in different areas of my stomach and when I get up to walk, I feel like my stomach is very tight and I can't stand up straight. Is this a sign of miscarriage or could this something else? If on not bleeding, does that mean everything is fine?
was it with the pain? I really wanna try to go natural and that seems like its close to it...I DON'T really want the epi....any advice or stories good or bad will help...
I'm 39weeks and 3 days been having bad cramp like pain off and on and sharp pain across my stomach once and a while. Is this braxton hicks??
So I feel like I have gas pains like if I had to fart or poop but I try and I cant. Sometimes its real intense that I cant walk or bend over. Is it just gas or what else couldnit be?? Lots of pressure in pelvic area ah its horrible. Im 38w4d.
My contractions felt like really bad gas pains with my second. Now, with my third, my BH feel the same way.
So I'm feeling a little sheepish asking this question, but this is my first pregnancy and the only time I've ever seen labor or a woman having contractions is on TV, which I would guess is not like the real thing. So how do you know when you're in labor? What does a contraction feel like, and how do you recognize it? Just curious, and wondering how I'll know when the time comes.
But im 34w5d and this morning my stomach hurt so bad it woke me up. My belly felt a little tight and the pain was all over, it felt like a stomach ache or bad gas? And i had cramps too. It lasted for awhile. And once it went away i had mild lower back pain for about an hour. I was able to fall back asleep and that pain only happened once. Also i felt like i had to poop, but didn't. Was that a contraction?? Im only almost 35 weeks pregnant, so idk if i should be experiencing that this soon.
I knew it was a contraction based on what my doctor had explained in the past might happen which is normal so long as its not more than 4 times in an hour. So my question is do actual labor contactions feel like this? Stronger? And last this long or longer?
No I tought she was going to be here sooner but now I don't know hahaha I want her out already. Im so anxious to see her.
