Another contraction question.

Where did your contractions begin, as in what part of your body? Did they start at the top or your stomach and work their way down, or did they start low and work their way up? I've heard different things. I know for some they even start in the front and move around. Can you describe how yours felt?

  • Mine started in my lower back and worked their way around to my lower stomach. I hear they are different for everyone. I guess everyone's body works differently to deal with the pain.

  • Mine always start in my back and work their way to the front. My first baby was born posterior, so I tend to have a lot of back pain w/ all my babies now.
