  • I'm confused... Contractions are essentially just cramps. They're the same thing. So are you feeling 2 different things?

  • Contractions feel like cramps. What do you mean you're having both? Are you sure they're not the same thing? Time them both together. If you're having weird pains, I would go to labor and delivery.
