Question GAS pains VS. LABOR pains

A friend of mine was telling me that labor pains felt like bad gas pains but like 5 times worse. When i had a m/c last year i was in alot of pain for a few hours after i was sent home. I put some heating pads on and drank warm tea all night. I felt like crying and i remember telling my self that if this was what labor felt like would i be able to go through this? But i think i can do it i mean after all im pregnant (7 months) so its not like i have a choice...lol How ever it feels i know i had too be ready..... There are alot of labor posts you can tell we are all getting a little closer.... Good luck you guys!!!!

Re: GAS pains VS. LABOR pains

The gas pains get (contractions) are more intense it will take you awhile but then you notice that they come every 10 min or every 5 min...

Re: GAS pains VS. LABOR pains

Hmmm, I am not sure what your question is? Are you asking how long each contraction lasts? I would say about 30-40 seconds if my memory serves me. I would have to agree with your friend saying that they feel like gas pains but MUCH MORE intense. The first contraction I had woke me out of a dead sleep and sorry, this probably sounds gross, but I thought I had to go to the bathroom. I got up and went to the bathroom thinking that was what was going on. But nothing. I finally went back to bed and then steadily throughout the night, I had them more and more. So I would say that is what it felt like to me. However, I do remember that when it was happening I described it to my mom because I wasn't sure what was going on and she did not think it sounded like labor to her, or what she felt anyway. She was wrong in my case!

Delia is right they can last up to 40 seconds..... I'm 36 weeks now and I'm starting to get them maybe 4-5 times a day (this is my second pregnancy)...
