  • For me they started out feeling like I had menstrual cramps or diarrhea. They progressively got more intense and closer together. I refused to believe I was in labor until I had the bloody show. lol.

  • VERY similar to period cramps except they come and go and get progressivly worse :) You will know when they start, your stomach will get very hard and tight and then release.

  • Well, for me it first felt like my belly was squeezing, and I had really bad cramps in my back too... For everyone, it feels different. I do not want to give you too much information on how contractions feel, because I do not want to scare you. All I can say, is, you will know.
