  • It could be braxton hicks contractions which is normal but I too got that pain and my doctor said it was normal. Honestly, the pain feels 100 thousand times worse than any period pain you may have ever felt. It's sort of like a stomach ache when you are about to vomit with the flu but times ten. So to me this does not sound like major contractions that you need to worry about. If you are truly concerned..ask your doctor.

  • I had the same pains the other day. the on-call doctor tells me to go to the Hospital. I asked Why? she said you may be in Labor. It didnt make any since to me to go to the hospital if the pain and tightening didnt go away. It wasnt labor. I took a warm bath and laid down. in about an hour it went away.
