Could someone please describe to me what contractions are and what they feel like?
I have this cramping feeling and when I have to pee or I stand up I feel it more. But when I lie down the pain isnt as bad lying on my side is the best thing.

There are different signs of contractions apparently,
1st, pms kind of cramping in lower abdomen,
2nd cramps in back/kidney area and
3rd pointing tummy, muscles contract on both sides of the tummy and not only where baby is pushing with his/her bums.


Hope that helps :d anyway, so far the contractions aren't painful just noticeable...
