 I think I am having contractions tonight but I cant remember what they feel like. I had my daughter 11 months ago but man was that epidural nice. I dont remember the pain! So tell me. When you labor at home what did yours feel like? Mine is pain in my lower abdomen. Below my "bump" if you can call it that anymore! Its so big! Anyway I've been getting my husband all excited because I keep telling him when I feel it. So tell me what yours felt like? Also did you feel sick, hungry, hyper, tired, drowsy, etc before you went into labor? I've been feeling sick and hyper and sometimes hungry.

Mine felt like a tight, painful squeeze below my belly and around my sides. I got really nauseous from mine.

Thanks. I dont know if mine really feels like a "squeeze" I cant quite explain it. I get a few seconds of pain every few hours..

 Its been awhile but I always had sharp pains in the middle of my back then tight squeezing of my side & stomach muscles

And your stomach is probably growling because "it" knows if  you go in to full labor your stomach won't be getting any food for awhile...Good Luck

See my back has been sore the past couple days and I get sharp pains in my "side back"  (dont know another way to put it) like right above my hip bones or straight up from the sides of my ass lol. Oh yeah another question ladies... Did your baby slow way down or keep pretty much the same momentum with keeping you up at night?

I didn't feel anything until I was 6-8 cm dilated with my first 2. (my third was an emergency c-section)....   The only way I knew I was in labor was that I had a little bit of bleeding...  and my belly would get really hard for 30-60 secs... and then relax...  then get hard again.  Put your hand on your belly and see if that happens.

 I had a low back ache....  diarrhea....  and I lost my appetite

My braxton hicks felt like early labor contractions.  They would every night become regular for about an hour or two.  When I went into actual labor my contractions became intense very quickly and did not let up.
