    Contractions may feel different to different people. For me it felt like my whole abdominal area tightened up and I had to sit down. It didn't hurt so much, but there was intense pressure. It kept happening and I could see a pattern of it happening in decreasing in intervals.

    Some ladies feel it in their back. Some ladies have no pain and others have very painful contractions. What I would suggest is if you feel tightening or pain to time it and see if it is happening at regular intervals. If it isn't, you may be having Braxton Hicks, which is your body getting ready for the real deal.
