  • IT HURTS! THAT IS WHAT CONTRACTIONS ARE, THE CERVIX DILATING.

  • Yeah, it hurts...like period cramps...just (a little) more intense. But when it happens slowly over a period of a week or more, it doesn't hurt at all. The day I had the twins I went to my weekly appointment just to find out I was 7 cms dilated. I had no pain to indicate that I was dilating at all.

  • Some do, some don't, some (like me!) have no clue!
