Contractions in your stomach

Common Questions and Answers about Contractions in your stomach

contractions

No contractions are like stomach tightening and sharp pain in your lower abdomen and your lower back.
Your stomach will get hard like a rock ... its kinda like a sting .
Although ok they can be inconsistent and occur every 5-7min, etc. You can have pain in your back or your stomach and your uterus is rock hard during contractions. They usually last one minute whereas bh last 30 seconds or less.
yes it could be. if you havnt yet, call your doc or the hospital and they will tell you if you need to go in or not.
For over a week I have had stomach contractions. No real heartburn, no vomitting, not even nausea. Some times as often as every 15 minutes, some times, hours between. I have taken maalox and such, seems to help for awhile. Severity ranges from as low as a 2 and as high as a a 7 or even an 8. I have had constant diarreah. Food doesn't irritate, in fact, sometimes helps. The most bothersome thing is it is actually causing alot of discomfort, as well as a back ache at times.
True contractions tend to wrap around to your back as well. Or from your back to your front. There's a huge difference between your belly being hard and a contraction.
I have been having pains in my stomach off and on it feels like peirod cramps but the hurt so bad could they be contractions im 34&2
I'm 31 weeks and I was laying in bed when I had these really sharp pains in. my lower stomach by my pelvic bone. it lasted maybe a minute and it happened just twice? I'm a ftm so I was just wondering if that what it was or just something else.
I've been having contractions once in a while. They are a pain ful and start at my stomach and go to my back. I was at 1cm dilated at 33 weeks, can it be that I'm just dilating more?
Its confusing because they say braxton hicks contractions come randomly nd are only in the front nd your stomach just gets really hard, I get those occasionally nd it just feels like he's in there doing a full body stretch, pushing his butt against my uterus nd my stomach gets really hard. But then, mainly after sex I get the menstrual cramping that starts from my back then goes to my front nd those will come 4mins apart. But my stomach won't get hard.
like cramps at the bottom of your stomach, your whole stomach tightens like sharp pains, or your lower back aches. & your due a day before me!! (: i want to get induced bc im so over this pregnancy thing.
Maybe your in labor. Some women have diarrhea days before labor because the body is wanting to clean itself out before delivery. How close are they and are they getting stronger?
Well I've had some and just about ten min ago I had one so bad I started balling and it scared my fiance and his dad it scared me! And now it feels.like weird twitching in my stomach what's this mean ??
are you able to time them? If you can than yes it may be a contraction.
Well hun if your in labor contractions don't stop and you very well could be at almost 38w. In the beginning of labor they can be very inconsistent. Every 20 min. ,15 min. but as labor progresses they will get closer together and last longer and become more painful.
u need to go in when it close together like back to back
Sounds like it's just braxton hicks contractions where your stomach just gets really tight for about a min then goes away.
Yesterday I was having contractions all day every 7-10 min, then last night felt sick to my stomach like I was going to be sick. The today I haven't had quite as many contractions, but I had green discharge (last time they said it was a yeast infection) and am feeling sick to my stomach again. Should I be calling the doc or are they going to just tell me its normal and im not ready yet? Im 38 weeks and 2 days. Is my body still in the preparing stage?
IM Currently 34 Weeks Pregnant, Baby Is In Position As Of This Morning When My OB Doctor Checked. I Keep Having These Sharp Sudden pains In My Lower Back And One Side Of My Stomach. Like My Stomach Is Getting Hard And The Back Pain Is Sudden In That It Startled Me Into Almost Needing To Stop Everything Till It Ends. They Are Coming In Waves Lasting A Few Moments And Then Will Stop And Return 4 Or 5 Mins Later For Roughly 45 Minutes Total. Anybody Else Experience This?
Can you feel contractions in your back????
Not in all cases. Contractions (true ones) are generally painful and it feels like your entire stomach gets hard everywhere. You can experience BH contractions as well and those don't hurt. They kinda feel like a Charlie horse, but in your stomach. I had contractions with my pregnancy though and I didn't know that's what they were (mine were BH) and when I was in labour, I had contractions in the front that hardly hurt.
I'm wondering that too cause i told my doctor about some pressure i had in my stomach one day, and it went to my vagina after and he said it was probably just a contraction and didnt seem worried or anything like that. I thought they were only common during your second, but its my first.
But I don't get the whole timing them. Lol do you get a random cramp in your belly for 30,seconds then 20 min later get another one on the other side ? Or is it all at once ? Or it is just the bottom of your stomach?
I know the pain of contractions feel like period pains but is it just at the bottom of your stomach like a period cramp or all over like the top as well. I'm 38 weeks pregnant and have been having weird pains all over my stomach area.
As im sure u know, your spine is connected to your ovaries through nerve cells and therefore the contraction goes through your back. Its simple geometry really.
Is it possible to have contractions in your upper stomach area or what could this pain be...
I had a miscarriage a year ago, and I know I had contractions then.. but I just cant remember exactly what they were like. Where are they located? Will your stomach tighten up like when having Braxton Hicks? I am sure when they happen I will know, but I have just been trying to watch out for little things. I am 33 weeks and 4 days, and today while I was in Wal-Mart and on my way home I have a few sharp pains at the bottom of my stomach on the side.. what could this be?
I was told by an RN that it feels like a charlie horse in your stomach and hurts.. I can't judge it by period cramp pain, I was hospitalized for having a seizure from the intensity of my cramps when I was 11ish.
when your contractions don't hurt those are typically BH contractions. I get them every so often. BH contractions can either be un-noticeable for the most part or they can be painful. This pregnancy I've had both, I get about 4 an hour or so and sometimes there really painful others I hardly notice it. I'd say if your getting more than 4 an hour you should lay down and rest (or go for a walk if you were resting) and see if there is a chance.
