  • Some people say that and some people say they feel nothing like menstrual cramps. For me, menstrual cramps are a low abdominal pain that seems to radiate through my whole body. The "radiating" feeling wasn't exactly pain, but more like nausea, not a distinct feeling, but almost a mental sense of something impending, and I didn't want to MOVE. Some women say contractions are just a feeling of intense pressure. I'm sure everyone experiences it differently, though.
