Pinching Feeling During Contractions

I'm 38 weeks and 2 days pregnant, last night I had a contraction and it felt like deep inside of my vagina was being pinched. Does this mean I could be dialating?

  • no it was just like 2 times last night, and then it went away. I woke up with a lower back ache this morning though, but I know that wasn't contractions

  • then it was nothing. if they arent consistent and kept up and getting stronger and closer together they arent true contractions.....

    just pressure and pinching down there. its normal. unfortunately lol

  • When it's real "ready to deliver" contractions, you'll be yeppin' and hollerin like a puppy dog. The pinching is just a sign there isn't much room left to move around in there. Maybe the baby is just getting into the right place for delivery.... I am excited for you, you will look back on this as such a wonderful time in your life! Rub your tummy and talk out loud to that child even now, tell the chunckymonkey what a good person he/she is and start now! Good luck, kiss that baby for me!
