  • I never had a single contraction, so I may not be the best person to answer this, but I do know that in the late 2nd trimester and in the 3rd trimester, I had some pretty painful crotch pain and some pretty painful pelvic pain. The pelvic pain was roung ligament pain and the crotch pain was just normal pregnancy discomfort. Me and my friends call it evil crotch pain, so it is pretty common and normal. Talk to your doctor about it at your next appt or even sooner if you think it is a problem.

  • most likely your body is getting ready for her apperance. Doesnt make it hurt any less but try and rest with a pillow between your legs, and some sitz baths.
