95% sure that I shouldn't worry...
This afternoon I had a fairly bad, fairly painful cramp on the left side of my belly... Which hasn't gone away entirely.
Now, I'm a total noob about contractions I kind of thought this was maybe Braxton-hicks? They's no rhythm, just a generally mild cramp (unless I do something that puts stress on the muscle- or if kidlett kicks it!). Can BH be painful?
Also, what do contractions feel like? I had one "uterus tightening" moment (which went on for 20 mins) after an orgasm... and decided that was no fun! Little girl didn't seem to care for it either.
I keep thinking that it's fine, I'll just ask the midwives about it next Tuesday, but then I get nervous...
I'm having SPD problems on that side as well, but that actually seemed better today.
