I am interested in hearing about all of the different ways we experience contractions (and secretly hoping I find some of you who experience them the way I am this time).
I am having contractions that feel totally different than my other pregnancies and it is freaking me out a little bit. Each time I am about to have a contraction, I know it is coming because my heart begins to race and it becomes harder to breathe and my head and chest get kind of fuzzy feeling...then the tightening/hardening and crampiness occur in my uterus. It feels like I am having anxiety or panicking, but those feelings occur before I get the contraction. I tried to explain this to my MW and she didn't get it and had never heard of such feelings before.
Anyone else have distinctive contractions? Anyone else feel the way I do???
