So I am sitting here in bed propped up with my pillows behind my head and I just got this pain. If I had to try and explain where it was I would say on my left side right above my butt/near my waist. It felt a lot like an intense period cramp but lasted about 10-15 seconds and then was gone. I have never felt something like that before! I hope it doesn't happen again! I can't imagine it is a contraction though b.c I felt it more in my back/top of my butt than in the front.

that sounds like what a friend of mine went through and she thought she was having contractions, but it turned out to be round ligament pain. just keep an eye on it and good luck.

No more so far! Hoping it was just a random weird pain!

It might have been gas moving around inside you, too. I've been having really sharp, sudden gas pains now that everything is getting squished in there, and it's been pretty much in the area that you described. I wouldn't think it was a contraction unless you felt like your uterus was simultaneously tightening. Did it feel like that?

Umm popping in. That DOES sound like a contraction. I've never had one that was in my stomach really. Always my back/butt and lower pelvic region.

That could be anything. The contractions I have this time are in my stomach but when I had dd and ds the only contractions I had were in my low back. They never wrapped around to my stomach.

Hmmm....well maybe it was a contraction! If so, it was painful and I am not looking forward to even the early parts of labor!! Nothing since so I think I am good.

Sounds like round ligament pain. Contractions for me started off first as just tightening of my abdomen without any real pain.
