I had ds 6 months ago. There was a full moon the night I was in labor (well, one of the nights), and every full moon since then I start feeling like I'm getting contractions again. Not full-on contractions, but that feeling like "time to get into position to ride this next one out" beginning to have a contraction feeling.
Am I a nut? I haven't started my period yet, so it's not PMS cramps. :
Even when I'm awake! Actually, it took me a while to make the connection. It's not like I look out the window, see a full moon, then start feeling crampy. It's the other way around. I start feeling like I'm going into labor and then realize it's a full moon again. I suppose it's all psychosomatic. But every month I think, "Oh crap. My period's back. : " (I'm also moody at this time.) But then it goes away by the next day.
I get something similar to this but it's associated with my period. After having my first (and it still happens now after my second), I get a feeling of pressure like the baby's head is coming down. It really feels the same as when I was pushing, but much more mild (doesn't hurt or anything). I think it's due to me needing to do more kegels.
