when you went into labor...

were YOUR contractions felt throughout your whole abdomen or were yours only in your lower area by your vagina/stomach?

  • True contractions cover the whole abdomen. BUT, that said, ANY regular contractions you should consult your medical person. (Doctor, midwife, doula)

  • once again thank you for NOT answering my question susie...

    im asking where were YOUR CONTRACTIONS when you went into labor... not what are the typical contraction pains.

    just like above where anonymous answered saying hers were different locations with each child.

  • Well, If I remember correctly, I could feel the entire uterus contract but the pain just just in my abdomen and THEN, very shortly it spready over to the entire stomach. Each one of my children was a little different. Labor pains have a distinct intensity about them. Its like you think youve felt it before and then BAM...its much more intense. You don't usually miss it.
