  • I'm not sure what those are.. perhaps the baby dropping or pressing downward? I'm 35 weeks and I've had them for a bit. They are a pain, but not harmful as far as I can tell. Sorry I couldn't be more help but at least I can tell you that you aren't alone! :)

  • Where do you feel the contractions?


     In true labor the pain tends to begin high in your abdomen, radiating throughout your entire abdomen and lower back, or visa versa. In false labor the contractions are often concentrated in the lower abdomen and groin.
