  • It's a tighening or a hardening of your uterus. It might feel like cramping, pulling, pressure, or even painful. It should not be drop-you-to-your-knees painful, and they should not be regular and developing (getting closer together and more intense).

  • mine felt very intense like cramping with muscle spasms across my stomach; it felt like what I imagined contractions would feel like, if that helps!

  • they feel the same as the real ones just without a pattern
