  • contraction! Sorry babe, that's the taste test for you. I'd start reading all I could about preparing for labor pain. Ina may's guide to childbirth is a good one, so is spiritual midwifery by the same, and any thing by sheila kitzinger.

  • Sounds like braxton hicks to me! You can start feeling them really any time during the 2nd trimester.
