  • nope I am pregnant with number 3 and only 13 weeks along. With my other 2 when I actually started feeling contractions they were 3 minutes apart and my whole uterus felt like it was tightening up and thats the only place i felt it

  • Mine are often and frequently one after another, but getting more intense.

  • Hey! Me too! lol. I'm trying to decide if these are going to be the real thing or not. With my DD I had back labor and there were no breaks in the pain once it set in, so I'm not sure I know what labor feels like. I'm having regular intense tightening at the top of my stomach which then works it way down the sides, and my back is achey. I'm going on 24 hours of this torture. I just want it to stop or get to the real part already!

  • I am having them. But trying not to concentrate on them bc I don't wanna have another pointless ER trip. This would make number 7. In a little over a months time. Each time its either false or some other issue. We will see though. Kinda hoping that this is it.
