  • You will know when you get them. They hurt like a bitch. And its a different "hurt" than you've ever experienced before. And the only way I could describe it would be a "tightening" but that doesnt do the definition of a contraction, justice. Its not fun, but its a natural thing we are born to be able to live thru and handle with grace if you just stay calm and breathe.

  • and after. every period you have starts with horrible cramps that remind you of what it felt like post delivering your baby when your body kicked into gear to deliver your placenta almost immediately after birth, while your baby is being cleaned up by the nurses...
