  • it just feels like your tummy is getting hard for a couple of seconds and then it relaxes again. it feels uncomfortable, but it shouldn't hurt

  • Tight temporary , muscle contractions in the abdomen region of your entire uterus, it's not the uterus itself, but the muscle walls that are around the uterus, and they are there to push later, to make you ready early, now it's just like a test period . IT feels like someone giving you a quick hug. but firm.

  • Mine just felt like the upper part of my belly was tightening...didn't hurt but made me a little uncomfortable while it lasted and then when it ended I could feel my belly relax again. If it's painful they are probably real contractions.
