  • This is how I felt all night long before I had my first contraction about 5 am, a few minutes later my water broke. Perhaps your body is "gearing up" for labor. Talk to you doctor if it's worrying you.

  • my contractions felt just like period cramps. I had two inductions and with the third didn't even know I was in labor.

  • Have fun with them.I had really painful ones pretty much the last 4 weeks of my pregnancy and never did go into labor. Ended up having a scheduled c-section.
