Mine were like this but the cramp was in my front and my back!!!!

I agree with most of the ladies.. Not a similar feeling at all..

But having said this . Its weird I always had strong memories of my previous births and now I find I can hardly remember anything..?? Baby brain or my body protecting itself so I can do it again... lol I don't know..

But I am looking forward to at least the start of labor

Yeah I wouldn't say a charlie horse.

And for me I wouldn't even say it feels like period cramps either?? It starts out as a tightening feeling that will get stronger and ends up turning into what I would say more like gas pains kind of instead. Mine tend to hurt down lower, not my WHOLE belly.
