  • It's not contractions, its more of a pinched nerve type thing. You should find a way to lay down where it doesn't hurt. I have this feeling ALL DAY EVERYDAY, until i lay down. It's killing me right now and I'm about to just go to bed because of it.

  • Shooting pains on your sides or across your belly are probably Round Ligament Pain (google the term to find out more). This is normal (and sometimes VERY painful, especially if you laugh, cough or sneeze!). A pinching, shooting pain on your butt or shooting down your legs may be pregnancy-induced sciatica. A throbbing pain in your back or side-back may be a spasming muscle due to the positioning of the baby.

    Braxton Hicks contractions are a rolling tightness. It almost feels like a rolling pin being gently rolled across your belly along with mild (or slightly more than mild) tightening and is not painful (although it can get uncomfortable).
