You are here
My water didn't break with either of my babies, nor did I have a bloody discharge. My first was induced, so those contractions feel completely different. My second was not - those you could definitely tell were contractions. It was a tightening of my entire stomach and back - like a rubberband. It tightened all the way around at the same time. A lot of lower back aching when the contractions weren't full on. I timed them and they were consistently a few minutes apart so I knew. But when I had one I had to stop walking and either stand still or lean over a coffee table to get through them. Think cramps, but all over front and your back. Do you think you are having contractions?
