  • They fell kind of like doing a stomach crunch. Also if you put your hand on your belly while you are having one it should be hard and tense.

  • For me they felt like the worst period cramps I have ever had.

  • They feel like all of the above but I also had really bad back pains in my lower back. I guess you can have contractions there as well

  • Contractions are so intense, they can be described as having your middle body put into a vice and having that vice tightened, and tightened. They take your breath away. They hit hard and fast. They're really indescribable!

  • I would say... They feel like someone is in your stomach ringing your intestines.A lot of pressure.
    Although...If you've had a toothache before I think that's the worse pain.I rather have a baby than a toothache.Weird but True LOL
