  • It is possible for the baby to move during contractions.. If they are true contractions, they will grow with intensity over time, not decrease.

  • Sounds like Front Labor to me!! Had this with my first son and man I have to say I will take it over back labor anyday!!! Keep a check on how close they are! I had some of those with my last child as well but they never got regular so Dr wasnt real concerned!!! I would say keep track and if they do become really regular and 5 min apart call your doctor and go in for a check no harm in making sure!!!

  • If you feel the pain coming and going, you might start timing how long there is in between. If they start to get closer together, and more painful, then it's labor. Otherwise, it could just be contractions from going out for a walk.
    Good luck!
