Hmm.. was wondering how is contraction like? And if having contraction, which side of tummy will hurt? (Pardon me coz i dont know anything =x)
I felt them since last week only ,
Menses cramps , backaches & tummy hard hard like this Can be painful when baby is moving & you r having contractions hehe ~
i never experienced menses cramp....but contraction is like mild cramp...thenas hours went by..become more intense n more painful...
Past few days, I felt my tummy hard like a rock and a mild pain when baby moves. Was wondering is this BH? I'm in my 3rd tri, due in mid mar
Yup is normal... & also it will get more & more painful... but when it comes just lie side way on the bed to rest a while.. & also i heard that drink warm water & take warm bath helps.... ya baby move you will feel pain also... cause of the position.... just sayang your tummy to let baby move a side... hee sometime it work for me...
But, the doctor says all of these are 'normal'? So how do we know when is a real contraction?
During my actual labour,this is how i describe my contractions..I felt a dull backache..And feels like someone takes a knife an stabs my lower abdomen repeatedly..!! I could only grit my teeth and let tears stream down my cheeks as i breathe through my contractions..And all that while,hubby kept asking me if i was in pain...DUHHHHhhh...!!!~~
I didn't know that the feeling I was having were contractions until they strapped the machine to my tummy. Tummy was hardening then softens, then it repeated again. Frequency was far apart. So can say that my initial contractions were quite mild till they burst my waterbag and put me on drip.
The really intense contractions felt like very bad menses cramps and I felt like my back was gonna break. BUT that's good, coz it means that baby is coming soon. When baby was pushing inside, you feel like you wanna pass motion. Really really wanna pass motion. That's when the gynae or midwife will start telling you to push. They will guide you how to push and breathe...though it's hard to focus..try to .
All the best and may you have a smooth delivery
I only know what is labour contraction when I deliver my baby.
The frequency and intensity of the cramp increase gradually.
It started with slight cramps and it last for a few mins then stopped for a few mins and as your baby is about to be delivered the intensity of the contractions will increase so much that you can feel like you r gg to pass motion(painfully). This will happen and you can feel that you are passing motion means your baby is pushing down..so you will deliver very soon...
it does not matter which side of your tummy will hurt.. there is no fixed side. For me, I feel the pain on my left side of tummy....
im in my 35 weeks now n i think i keep having braxton hicks. how to differentiate from real contractions? especially now i keep feeling baby's movement at the bottom.
my vagina keep cramping these days and it's real painful. is it the cervix is softening and expanding?
