  • Not neccesarily. You could be having other issues as well. How long has this been going on? What else has been going on? Any diarrea? Does it happen after eating? Could be back labor.
    Get checked.

  • If it is so painful that you can't stand it, it could def be contractions. Call the ER and tell them whats going on, or just go. I'd just go, if it isn't contractions, they won't think you wasted their time I promise.

  • You need to go to the ER. If you aren't in labor, it could be your gall bladder. It really does sound like gall bladder to me.

  • I had a labor and felt weird and sharp pains and I thought there's no way this is contractions and finally I couldn't take it anymore and went into L&d and I was dilated to a 5 and completely effaced, I had my DD 1 hour later! Every labor is different so go to the L&d and get checked out if you are not in labor there's something else going on hon! Good luck

  • I only had tightening when I was in full blown labor with my 2ed baby! It dose not sound right so go to L&D and demand them to find out what is going on!

  • well last time i was at the doctors i was already dilated to 3 and fully thinned. so maybe thats where the pain might be coming from? but thanks ladies , i called my boyfriend and he is getting off work to take me up there hopefully its just normal .
