First time on here in long time. But anyways. you don't feel yourself dialating. and Contractions are not always painful. The pain in your v____a area is most likey the baby pushing down words moving down to get ready to be born. i don't know about the b___t thing. I know you wrote this yesturday. Contractions are your utures tighting and releasing. IF you still having the pain i would just check with your dr. let him know what is going on. if you really our worried try to get into see your dr. today and if you can't go to the hospital and have them check you out. if you think you might be having contractions the hospital will monitor you for an hour to determine if you need to stay or not. weather they think you will have the baby soon.


Hello Jessie - November 22

Many have that stabbing feeling off and on throughout pregnancy, it does not mean you've dilated. I have noticed it can get worse, last night it was so bad I jumped in bed from the pain. I have dilated, but I've had the pains months before I started to.

I get those pains too. How far along are you? Towards the end, I take it. I'm at 3cm and 80% effaced now, in "early labor" but we all know that can go on for a day or weeks.
