My whole stomach will get REALLY tight, and it kind of gets hard to breath. Not REALLY hard, but somewhat hard to breath. Sometimes there is pain in my lower stomach like mentrual cramps. Sometimes the pain is dull, or it hurts pretty bad, and sometimes it doesn't hurt at all. It's never hurt enough for me to be like, "OMG THIS HURTS SOOO BAD." I've heard different things from different people. My mom and my aunt don't think that I'm having contractions, but Idk what else they could be. Mom said that it's what I described, with lower pain. The doctor that described them to me said that it's a tightened stomach with ALL over pain. I just don't know... That's another thing they say, "you'll know when your in labor." I'm not wondering if I'm in labor, I'm wondering if these are contractions!
oh, another thing I'm experiencing is a sharp pain in my vaginal area. I read somewhere that those pains could mean dilation of the cervix, but Idk if I've dilated because I haven't been checked. I don't think they check me because when they ask if I've had contractions, I say, "I'm pretty sure I have been having them, but Idk for sure."
i feel dumb for having to ask.. lol.
