This is to anyone that has ever been pregnant. Have you had this surreal experience?

I am 30 weeks along and have the occasional braxton hicks contraction.

Well once yesterday and twice today I had some super strange contractions. They started by giving me painless nerve twitching in the middle of my back for a few seconds. While the twitching was happening my belly would involuntarily twitch right along with my spine, then I would go into a painless contraction.

The surreal part comes in because it seems that I am paralyzed for those few seconds of twitching.

WTF? What is this? Has it happened to you?

  • You may be having problems with your nerves in your back. Somewhat common. I would contact my DR just to be sure. It may be as simple as the contractions hitting nerves.

  • Maybe it has something to do with not wearing socks.
