  • That sounds like the baby kicked you in the diaphram. My son did that a few times while I was pregnant...

  • like the strongest and dullest menstral cramps you'll ever have. Seriously though, it isn't THAT bad. I had back labor for a day before the kid turned and it wasn't that bad. It will all depend on your level of pain tolerance.

  • That could be contractions if it is steady and gets longer, stronger, and closer together. I have heard some women describe contractions like getting kicked or punched in the stomach.
