Re: What Do Contractions Feel like
Contractions feel like period cramps and they intensify until it is time to push. You can also have back labor which means that your lower back aches and to me it felt hot and a dull throbbing pain. I used no drugs or interventions for the birth of my daughter, so I can honestly tell you what they feel like, because I felt all of them. They get worse and worse, but the best part that many people don't tell you is that there is always a break between the contractions, so even towards the end when they are the most intense, I was still able to relax between each one and that was great.
