  • They're horrible. They feel like cramps that move all throughout your uterus, back, and bottom. You feel like you have diarrhea or something, the way they bear down on your bottom. It is the most uncomfortable feeling, unlike anything I've ever felt. You will know. They're like a rush in your uterus that builds and then goes away.
