This is probably one for those of you that have had children before or recently had your babies! I was just wondering what contractions actually feel like/where you would feel them? This is probably a stupid question Yesterday I had about half a dozen pains about every 30 seconds that lasted a few seconds each. It was where (I think) my cervix is, at least that is where it feels like they were coming from. It was sort of there and sort of in my pelvis. It occurred to me that I'd always assumed that you'd feel contractions in your tummy but thinking about it, it makes sense for you to feel it in your cervix if that is what is dilating, surely it would hurt? Which is right? Is the pain in the foof area just another pain and contractions are totally different or is that what they feel like?
