Question Contractions ??

hi everyone,
i am not sure if i'm experiencing contractions or what...but i'm a little scared.

they are pains that started at 3.50 this afternoon and it's 5 now. they are sharp and coming off and on.

what is throwing me is that they are not on the sides of my tummy but rather in the middle and i feel like i have to use the restroom.

with dd i had contractions on the sides and felt like i had to use the restroom all day.

i'm having them again right now.

i guess i should start timing them.

has anyone else had contractions in the middle of the tummy ??

maybe it's just gas ??
i'm 38w5d

Re: Contractions ??

Hey posted awhile I'm not sure if you have already gone and got checked out or what. I'd say your best bet would be to keep track of these pains. I wouldn't be surprised if they were contractions. This my 3rd baby and with my 1st 2 kids, my contractions were ALWAYS at the top of my belly....never anywhere else. Now, whenever I have any contractions, they are always in my lower abdomen. I know mine are just bh contractions cause they will stop when I change positions.....but my doctor did confirm that these lower pains I have are in fact contractions via my NST. So, I imagine it is possible to have them in the middle as well.

Just keep track of them and eventually if you're in real'll know. Best of luck to you....maybe you're next out of us Feb moms!!! I hope to read your birth story soon.....and hope to be able to post my own soon!!! haha.

Re: Contractions ??

I went through about three days of almost constant BH contractions... tight tummy all through the middle... nothing on the sides or back. Not even down low. Make sure you're drinking alot of water. Remember that if they change or diminish when you lie down (or shift position) they're not real.

Good luck!!!
