  • I remember waves of tightening and hardening, sometimes they could be pretty uncomfortable.

  • to me, it was the best part of labor! you think it sucks at the time, but just gets better! LOL okay, so what I got was a feeling like I was extremely full, couldn't breathe as well and I could literally touch my belly and feel it tighten and loosen up. It was so weird, especially when she decided to roll over during one!
