feels like im having contractions.. but im not pregnant!

So I've been having these pains last night into this morning.. it seriously feels like labor pains.. or contractions.. but IM NOT PREGNANT!  I had my son dec 6, 2007.. ive had the Mirena birth control until last friday.. i had it removed because DH and I are trying for baby number 2.  So with it only being out not even a week, there's virtually no way I'd be pregnant.  But even if I was.. not any where near 9 months to be having contraction pains like this.  Its so strange.   The pain starts in my back and it circles around my stomach and lasts for 4 to 5 seconds or so.. just like my contractions did when i was in labor with my son.. only, i was induced into labor.  Anyone ever had this before? my only thought would be back spasm.. but why would it circle around my stomach.   I try to feel if my belly gets hard, but i am just caught off guard as to when it comes and its over so quick.   im so confusedddd! anyone??

Maybe constipation cramps, they feel like labor pains to me.

bladder spasms feel alot like contractions-could u have a uti?

drink a ton of water and cranberry juice and get to the doc if your symptoms continue.

its funny because I was going to ask if you had in the Mirena, because when I had mine in I had labor feeling pains and it was my body rejecting it, maybe you uterus is trying to regulate itself, IDK

I still have the back contractions. Maybe it's just your body getting use to having the IUD out? Good Luck.

i dont think its constipation.. im going just fine, in fact i have never really been constipated not even when  i was pregnant with my son.  and the uti thing.. its not really a pain near where my bladder would even be.. its like right under my breasts.. almost like my ribs.. upper abdomen.. into upper back.  i have no idea.. i just keep getting flashbacks to this one show i saw on TLC about women who didn't even know they were pregnant and went into labor hahaha! i really doubt i am preg.. and if i am.. id only be like 4 days.. we had sex on the 14th and the 15th.. this was right after my mirena was removed. 

im stumped.. oh well..  it seems to be gone now so hopefully i am okay! i would go to my doctor, but my health insurance is really stupid and only covers 4 dr visits a year.. and i just used 1 for the obgyn to get my pap and mirena out.  im trying to save them up incase i really need them lol hopefully it was just gas! hahaha

I was having bad stomach pains when I got pregnant with my first, had them all day finally someone said I should take a preg. test. It was positive, and when I went in I had caught it soo early they couldn't see anything on the ultrasound yet, the next week they saw the yolk sac. So, I don't know if the two were related or not, but it doesn't hurt to test. If you have a Dollar Tree they sell tests for $1 and they are just as accurate.
