This is my second kid so I should know this but where do you feel contractions?

I always thought you felt them kinda low but I"ve been feeling pain high, it's get hard then soft again so I was wondering if this is a contraction nor something else.
I'm not worried about goin into labor or anything just wondering.

  • it could be stretching or maybe a braxton hicks contration, also if no one is on call at your doctors office you can call you labor and delivery department and describe the pain to them and they would ba able to help you out

  • With each person and pregnacy it is different. Just by timing them you will be able to tell if they are BH or actual contractions.
    Steady intervals and over 30 seconds is usually real. Intermitten and for under 30 is usually BH.
