When you have a contraction... Justine's Mama Due November 28; 1 child; Boynton Beach, Florida 1939 posts

Does your entire belly tighten up or just part of it? I feel like I am not going to know if I am having contractions or not. My Dr told me your belly goes from feeling like your cheek to feeling like your forehead. But I am wondering if a part of your belly tightens or the whole thing will.



Gosh I need a life, I am being a huge post wh**e today, but I have no life so don't mind me :shock:

Okay was just wondering. My Dr asked if I had any contractions I was like uhh I don't think so but I am not quite sure told her I had back pain. She then explained the cheek forehead thing haha She probably thinks I am a nut.

Okay since two of you said your entire belly and I never really heard anyone say parts of there belly I am guessing your whole belly will get tight then. Thanks for the responses.

My contractions before labor my whole stomach would tighten. During labor they felt like really strong cramps, and nothing felt like it was tighting up.
