Okay, so I am on watch for preterm labor and I've been getting weird pains tonight.. They aren't frequent, could be normal at this stage of pregnancy. I don't know. People always say that the pains before contractions start are like period cramp pains, but worse. However, I've never ever had menstrual cramps. So I have no idea what they feel like nor how bad they can be. Could anyone lend they're experience with these pains that I should be on watch for? Where are they located? Do they have to be constant? Can they be intermittent and not timeable? How bad are they? Can they start out low frequency? Thank you for any responses. I am so confused.
