So I don't know if this is what I am experiencing, but I remember reading that several of you ladies experienced this.
Until now, I've been feeling relatively great the past couple of months. Haven't even had to use the mounds of pillows to sleep like I did with DS's pregnancy!
Well, tonight, something happened and I started feeling lower back crampy pain. At first it was constant, nothing excruciating but definitely crampy and uncomfortable. It almost felt like the menstrual crampiness (sp?) that I experienced when going into labor with DS, but it wasn't low and in front....only in back.
My lower front started becoming tight, but I think in response to my back pain. I went and got on my left side in bed and although that helped the pressure, they began coming in waves, but nothing I could really time. And my belly would harden, but only the lower part.
After about an hour and a half, I went and took a warm shower. It felt great in the shower, but now that I'm out and lying on my left side again on the couch, the crampy back pain is coming back.
Again, nothing extreme but definitely has me a bit on edge.
Is this normal of prodromal labor?
