Alright, this may sound odd but I'm truely confused on what contractions are going to feel like. I have one child who is 12 years old but I suffered back labor with him so I never experienced "normal" minor labor pains. I am 38.4 weeks pregnant and I believe I have had signs of the early phase of labor which included just small pinchy like feelings in my abdomin. I had an internal exam and the doc said I was 1cm and 50% as of yesterday morning and last night I had the same type of pains but were a little more intense. Everyone keeps saying contractions will feel like menstural cramps and when doing an NST I noticed when it was registering small contractions it kinda felt like i had an overfull belly. Can anyone explain how their contractions may have felt so I can see if there is something closer I can relate to for description? It sems when I have the cramping that after being able to go to sleep things stop....what can I do to continue them while getting the rest I need to prepare for the final stages....
