  • sometimes they don't even really hurt unless your'e in active labor. I had a LOT of early contractions (had to be on meds) but it feels like your whole abdomen is just getting really tight and uncomfortable. IF you even think you are having contractions and your not that far along you need to go to the L&D asap. I was there 8 times before I even delivered. I had a really rough last couple months of pregnancy!
