Ok, what exactly does a contraction feel like??? Does it feel like a stabbing pain or just a tightening pain??? I was induced and had an epidural with my 1st son so I never went into labor on my own or really had to experience the painful contractions!!!!

I was also induced with mine, but it can be both from what I have been told. My friend went into labor and her only sign was a dull back ache

with my first all I had was back pain, didn't feel any tightening at all or any pain in the front of my stomach. With my other two the contractions would start out with tightening of my stomach then wrap around to my back and I would feel pressure like my belly was being pushed down by the contraction.
