squished - February 4

I was wondering if any of you were having these. What do they feel like? Is it just a tightening feeling, like the uterus is balling up or tightening up? I'm only 16w and once in a while it feels like it's tightening up. Is it normal to have these at only 16w? I always thought that they came later on. Thanks!

Yep, that's exactly what they feel like - my uterus feels kind of like a rock, super tight. It's normal, unless you have more than 4 in one hour, in which case contact your doc right away or go to the ER (sign of preterm labour).

Sometimes I have some of these in a row when I'm at work, I think if I've been lifting a lot or walking a lot. They go away after a little bit. Drinking water and taking a breather seem to help too. Thanks your guys!
