Heather, inner thigh pain question ...

Could you always tell you we're for sure having a contraction with the thigh pain? I keep alternating contractions and inner thigh pain/back pain, but I can't always tell if my uterus is getting harder with the thigh pain. Wondering if it's the start of something ...

Mine was more my outer thigh...but yes! I couldn't even feel my uterus tightening, I'd wait for the pain to radiate down my thighs. Then I knew it was a contraction. I hope you ladies don't get it. It SUCKED!

Still having it, now with back pain and some more obvious contractions. Maybe baby?

Might be a good sign! I hope it goes fast for you or the leg pain leaves. I couldn't take it!

I'm at the hospital, was only a 2 at 11 central, but haven't been checked since. Contractions definitely more intense and painful. Lots of back/thigh pain. Sad Sure hope these are doing something besides hurting!

My friend who just had a baby was only a 1cm when she got to the hospital. However, due to what the monitor was showing they let her stay. She had a baby about 2-3 hours after checking in. Smile I hope that things picked up quickly for you too Lauren. Usually if the contractions are really intense, it doesn't take too long for the body to "catch up" at some point.
