  • Is it constant or does it go away? Real contractions can be felt in lots of ways some people only get pain in the back, others all over, or others in one specific area.

  • It is normal for it to be in different spots, good luck this is a rough time.

  • I only felt it on my right side. I swore at times that my uterus was lopsided because I could feel it bunch up on one side and not the other.

    However, when I went into labor, my entire uterus contracted and I felt pain throughout.

    If you're worried, ask your doctor the next time you see them.
