Avatar f tn Some say they n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feeln> like bad period cramps, some say like painful muscle spasms or an increase in pressure. Some get it in the lower abn style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>men and some in their back.

2075737 tn?1379451282 Its a different kind of hard, it'll be kind of like cramping.

I can't walk or talk or hardly breath, and while the menstrual like cramps make stay the.other stuff will come and go.

8216878 tn?1403886512 Mine was a sudden sharp pain i<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> my lower ab<spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> style = 'backgrou<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>d-color: #dae8f4'>do</spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>>me<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> that literally brought me to my knees. Last for like 30 sec then a couple mins later it came back. Contractions got closer and closer together. Didn't vomit until about an hour before I started pushing. Sry TMI haha.
Avatar f tn today I have been getting Sharp pains in my lower back and tightening in my lower abn style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>men..are these actual contractions or braxton hicks...
Avatar f tn My co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>tractio<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>s actually felt like cramps just much more intense and i rent then i<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> my lower abn style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>men. What n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn>r n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feeln>ing waste probably just braxton hicks though, good luck!
Avatar f tn They are kinda hard to explain. Id say like bad period pains or belly ache pains n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn> get when n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn> have a bad stomach. n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn> will definatley know what they are when n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn> get them though lol.
Avatar f tn I've also been having Braxton Hicks contractions for the past month but they were mostly mild pain i<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> my lower ab<spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> style = 'backgrou<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>d-color: #dae8f4'>do</spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>>me<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> and my stomach hardening and once I would lay on my left side and drink a bunch of water they would eventually subside. Also the baby is still moving but when he kicks during the cramping it n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feeln>s like my uterus is going to break open. Is this what contractions n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feeln> like or n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>es it sound just like normal pregnancy pains?
Avatar n tn true co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>tractio<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>s are felt i<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn>r lower back and lower ab<spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> style = 'backgrou<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>d-color: #dae8f4'>do</spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>>me<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> area. Braxton hicks are like a tightening of n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn>r lower abn style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>ment with no pain. The true contractions fell like extreme tightening in n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn> lower abn style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>men, when n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn> n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feeln> n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youn>r abn style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>men it will hard like a rock. A contraction starts out slow and peaks and then goes away slow. hope this helps.
Avatar f tn i had really bad lower back pain. And this morning some cramps i<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> my lower ab<spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> style = 'backgrou<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>d-color: #dae8f4'>do</spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>>me<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>. Ive been having pains i<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> my lower back that come and go.. can they be contractions ? Its just on my lower back tho, they n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>nt really move towards my belly. Im super uncomfortable and n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>nt wanna get to excited but i wanna meet my little boy already !
7417215 tn?1403490702 I literally just got home from my n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>don>ctor and they had to stop my co<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>tractio<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>s. For me it started out i<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> my lower ab<spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> style = 'backgrou<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>d-color: #dae8f4'>do</spa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span>>me<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>n</span> on only the left side. They were so strong I couldn't move or breathe through them and it left me with tears in my eyes after each one. Those went away and about an hour later i started n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feeln>ing a cramping that I can only explain as n style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feeln>ing almost like diarrhea cramps, in my whole belly.. It quickly started wrapping around into my back and my spine.
