  • doesnt sound like contractions just because your stomach is not tightening up.. however it could be quite a few things gas, round ligament pain, uti, or you might just have to poop and not know it yet lol. if you are concerned contact your doctor tomorrow no reason to let your concern go unanswered after all you are mommy =) good luck!

  • I had that problem and post the same question and a lot of people here told me it was probably round ligament pain and they were right.

  • How far along are you? I would guess its ligament pain and nothing to do with contractions or labor.

  • Not sure, in my labor it began feeling little stomach cramps like your period was coming.

  • could be round ligament pains, gas pains, or contractions.

  • It depends on how far a long you are. Everyone experiences labor differently. Round ligament pain or it could be the baby would be my guess. You will get sharp pain in places that you will question which is definitely okay. Always play it safe if you are worried and call your doctor.
