  • Mine started in my lower back and kinda wrapped around (if that makes sense). It really felt like a had to use the restroom really bad. And they came in waves, the was a pattern to them. It would probably be a good idea to call the doctor.

  • if the pain gets really bad where you can not walk or talk that is a really good sign in labor. If can time them and call and get to doctor cause if the real thing you might miss the window for pain medicine.

  • I agree, but also my labor was different with each child and none was predictable.

  • period cramps that are very intense and like you have to have a huge bowel movement but cannot push until someone says so

  • Your whole belly cramps up like period cramps except its the WHOLE belly all the way up to your boobs. Keep track of them (their intensity, how long they last, and how long in between separate ones) and if they hit around every 3 minutes, get to the hospital.
