  • How far along are you? Do you think you are in labor? I wouldn't describe labor as feeling like sit ups, but my water breaks first, so what do I know! Call the doctor's service they will find him/her. If you are at term and think it is labor go for a walk and see if it gets stronger or goes away. If you are early call the doctor and at least give him/her a heads up as to what is going on with you.

  • Okay so I visited your page and see you are about 3 months. You are probably at that point where your uterous has expanded to where is it streching your muscles from the inside. No big deal. Mention it to your doctor just in case I'm wrong, but I remember having that with my first.

  • We were/are all worried about every pain, odd sensation, etc. for the first baby. A lot of women are like that for all pregnancies. When I was pregnant, my husband always used to get upset because he'd try to tickle me or play fight for foreplay or something, and I'd yell at him about how it wasn't good for the baby. EVERYTHING makes you worry when you're still not sure what to expect. Just listen to the doc, and don't 20 weeks you'll be BEGGING for that little one to vacate!
