    Default Contractions or stomach cramps??

    No idea what are real one (or false one feels like), but I think it's just stomach cramps.

    What does a contraction feel like?

    I think everyone feels them differently. A REAL contraction would most likely feel like a painful tightening of the uterus, sometimes accompanied by back pain.

    My contractions usually feel like my uterus getting ROCK HARD, and pain radiates from the front, around my left side to my back. But that's just me

    Try lying down on your left side and drinking water. If the pain subsides and contractions seem to stop, it's most likely not the real deal.

    I can tell when it is a contraction/braxton hick contraction cause my stomach gets hard. You can feel it get hard from the outside too! But I've been having a bunch of menstral-like cramps lately. I plan on bringing it up to my doctor on thursday even though I'm sure its normal.

    My contractions always feel like bad PMS cramps! Are they timeable, or just random?

    They seem to be timeable, But I think the are stomach cramps. Mostly front of belly and I have some nausea and diarrhea.

    No hardening of my belly

    If your stomach is not getting hard, then I would say they definitely aren't contractions. Contractions will make it rock hard all over as mentioned above. I notice if my bladder is full it makes contractions worse.
