May sound stupid...but I am wondering.

I have yet to feel a it when my belly tightens up?? I mean everyone says they hurt...but my belly just gets hard and then goes away after 5 mins or so. I am just wondering does that mean I could handle labor better or what??

  • No I had them the same way
    Also when I was in actual labor they felt the same till i hit about 4-5 centimeters
    I thought I could handle it better too till then I went natural

  • That is probably bh. Thats how it was for me to. But trust me at 5 centimeters I definitely started having a tough time with them

  • Ahhhhh wishful thinking. lol....just kiddin'

    Thats kind of how mine were in the beginning and they got worse. I think all women are just different.

    Sorry, just telling what happened to me. ;)

  • I never had them with my first baby, so maybe you won't.
    I'm in my second pregnancy and I have had a few and it just feels like you're having a cramp or something. It did freak me out a first because I was like, No not my period. . .wait, I'm pregnant, it can't be!
