I'm due in 12 days and lately, every once in awhile I will get these horrible pains in my belly, right by my belly button. I've asked a bunch of women if they thought this was labor, but all I get was , "Everyone is different, it could be." The pain isn't a 'cramp' pain, it feels more like a torn muscle. It stops me dead in my tracks and I can't move. After about a minute it goes away.
I don't want to be the woman who cries labor all the time, but this is my first and I'm so afraid that I'm not going to know when I'm in labor and it's going to be too late. Are these in fact contractions or could it be something else? Anyone else have this problem?
I have a doctor's appointment on Wednesday, do you think I should wait and ask them what it is till then, or call now?
