For the last few days I've been having some strange pains that I've never had with my other two pregnancies. It usually happens when I'm walking. I'll get what I THINK is a Braxton hicks contraction (my belly starts to get tight at the top and then slowly my whole belly gets really tight) but it ends with a sharp cramping pain that radiates into my inner thighs. I literally have to stop walking when it happens because it almost makes my legs feel like they're going to give out. Is this normal? I know, I know....it's my third baby and you'd think I would know the answer to this! LOL! But, I was induced with both of my other pregnancies because my body just does not go into labor on its own. I really don't even know what contractions feel like because I've always been ale to get my epidural pretty much as soon as I got to the hospital for my inductions. So, any ideas? Do you thnk it's actually a contraction or just Braxton hicks? I have my first "check" on Wednesday, so I guess I'll find out then if what I'm feeling is actually doing anything.
