Hi , i am 39 w 4 d pregnant . Iam feelor: #dae8f4'>ing very low paor: #dae8f4'>in <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> abdomen <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> left side , like periods , but no water break no bloody show . I am confused if its contraction or sumthor: #dae8f4'>ing else ?
I'm 40+3weeks pregnant and I've been feel cramps <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> abdomen and back... or: #dae8f4'>are those or: #dae8f4'>contractions? What am I suppose to look for?
They or: #dae8f4'>are kor: #dae8f4'>inda hard to explaor: #dae8f4'>in. Id say like bad period paor: #dae8f4'>ins or belly ache paor: #dae8f4'>ins you get when you have a bad or: #dae8f4'>stomach. You will defor: #dae8f4'>inatley know what they or: #dae8f4'>are when you get them though lol.
For me it was obvious.. paor: #dae8f4'>in <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> back that radiated to the abdomen. They might start out as mild paor: #dae8f4'>in and the closer you get, the more or: #dae8f4'>intense the paor: #dae8f4'>in.
I've also been havor: #dae8f4'>ing Braxton Hicks or: #dae8f4'>contractions for the past month but they were mostly mild paor: #dae8f4'>in <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> abdomen and my or: #dae8f4'>stomach hardenor: #dae8f4'>ing and once I would lay on my left side and dror: #dae8f4'>ink a bunch of water they would eventually subside. Also the baby is still movor: #dae8f4'>ing but when he kicks duror: #dae8f4'>ing the crampor: #dae8f4'>ing it feels like my uterus is goor: #dae8f4'>ing to break open. Is this what or: #dae8f4'>contractions feel like or does it sound just like normal pregnancy paor: #dae8f4'>ins?
Can they feel like sharp paor: #dae8f4'>ins <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> abdomen? I've been gettor: #dae8f4'>ing stabbor: #dae8f4'>ing paor: #dae8f4'>ins for like 30 mor: #dae8f4'>inutes down there.
true <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>contractions</span> or: #dae8f4'>are felt <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> back and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> abdomen or: #dae8f4'>area. Braxton hicks or: #dae8f4'>are like a tightenor: #dae8f4'>ing of your lower abdoment with no paor: #dae8f4'>in. The true or: #dae8f4'>contractions fell like extreme tightenor: #dae8f4'>ing or: #dae8f4'>in you lower abdomen, when you feel your abdomen it will hard like a rock. A contraction starts out slow and peaks and then goes away slow. hope this helps.
i had really bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> back paor: #dae8f4'>in. And this mornor: #dae8f4'>ing some cramps <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> abdomen. Ive been havor: #dae8f4'>ing paor: #dae8f4'>ins <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> my lower back that come and go.. can they be or: #dae8f4'>contractions ? Its just on my lower back tho, they dont really move towards my belly. Im super uncomfortable and dont wanna get to excited but i wanna meet my little boy already !
I literally just got home from my doctor and they had to stop my <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>contractions</span>. For me it started out <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lower</span> abdomen on only the left side. They were so strong I couldn't move or breathe through them and it left me with tears or: #dae8f4'>in my eyes after each one. Those went away and about an hour later i started feelor: #dae8f4'>ing a crampor: #dae8f4'>ing that I can only explaor: #dae8f4'>in as feelor: #dae8f4'>ing almost like diarrhea cramps, or: #dae8f4'>in my whole belly.. It quickly started wrappor: #dae8f4'>ing around or: #dae8f4'>into my back and my spor: #dae8f4'>ine.
Also it was very wet down there a few hours and im not sure if it was my water breakor: #dae8f4'>ing .. it was a trickle, not a gush of fluid.
But to answer your question- my <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>contractions</span> feel like my muscles <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>in</span> my abdomen tightenor: #dae8f4'>ing on their own and they last for like a mor: #dae8f4'>inute straight. They feel kor: #dae8f4'>inda like they're pushor: #dae8f4'>ing my baby down. But when I first started gettor: #dae8f4'>ing braxton hicks they were or: #dae8f4'>in my lower abdomen pretty much the same thor: #dae8f4'>ing, just not as or: #dae8f4'>intense and they went away when I moved around.
