  • Only around the last month, and only when I stood up, or climbed stairs, or did something that put a strain on me. They were very subtle too. But my cousin had them much stronger and sooner than I did, so it varies from woman to woman.

  • I did the entire third trimester with my first. No contractions at all until active labor with my second.

  • If I did I didn't feel them. I have a high pain tolerance. When I was being prepped for my planned C-section with my daughter I remember the doctor looking at me and asking if I was feeling the contractions I was having. This was before the spinal. I felt nothing.

    With my son, who is my firstborn, I dilated to 6cm at home feeling like I was having the worst cramps ever.

  • I started with my last child at around 3 months but i also was 3 or 4 cm. All my babies were preterm and started out like that.
