  • Try sitting on a birth/exercise ball if you have one. Of all things, don't lay down on your back, that will only make them worse. Try walking around between contractions to make them more productive. If you have someone else around, slow dance with them, I'm serious :) The swaying motion of your hips while standing will help.

  • What makes them hurt more?
    Have you noticed certain things cause them to intensify or to decrease?
    How long have you had them & how close are they?

  • Walking has always helped me. It makes me feel like I'm doing something to help myself, too.
