Yesterday I had BH contractions all day long. They never seemed to go away until my method of last resort at 11pm last night--a glass of red wine (I understand it can be a controversial subject, but that's not why I'm writing).
Today I've only had a couple of BH. I am feeling, however, this weird pulling feeling/tension sensation in my vagina that just comes and goes. I seem to remember there being a post similar to this a while back but didn't pay much attention to it since I was not far enough along for it to happen to me. Well, now it has!
Any ideas as to what causes this sensation? It doesn't hurt but it's not comfortable either.
I was reading about it online because I have I think what you're describing although mine sometimes is painful, it feels like electrical shocks kind of all of the sudden, that is the best way I can describe it but not like as painful as a shock, just the way it quickly comes and goes. I read that it is either the baby pushing on nerves behind the cervix which i tend to think mine is because I have been having it for a couple of months actually. Or it could be changes taking place in the cervix like dilation or something. Hard to know if what you describe is the same thing as me but that is what I read about what I am going through. Good luck, hope it doesn't get too bad.
I remember when I was around 35 or 36 weeks with my first pregnancy, I got the weirdest sensations in that area. I thought for sure, and this will sound weird, that my daughter was pinching me! It felt almost exactly like a pinching or biting feeling but in that area. It really weirded me out and plus like you said, it wasn't painful, but certainly not comfortable either. I never did figure out what it was for sure but chalked it up to something being pressed on in a weird way. Anyway, not sure if you are having the same thing or not, but either way, I hope you feel better!
