  • well, yes your uteran muscles become rock hard, but if you have some padding it will still have that give. thats how it is for me, and was last time as well. it does get surprisingly hard though, more so than i would think w my weigt.

  • Ok cause it gets really hard but still has a padding give. my last 2 deliveries i was induced and i didnt feel much in the way of contractions. this one feels like the first real pregnancy to me lol.
