I swear I am having weird contraction-type feelings in my rear end. Like I had when I was in labor but not as severe. What is this? It is like a shooting pain that lasts about 3 seconds and happens randomly. ugh.

I'm sorry, I don't know what that is, but I can't help but laugh at the description

I bet it's just your body recovering from the experience of childbirth. There are a lot of muscles and connective tissue that went through a lot only a few weeks ago!

Hope it gets better soon, Kerri!

You know, that's kind of what I was thinking. I've been having weird throbbing pains in what feels like my labia and hip flexors, but only at night. I think it may be all the connective tissues retracting back to their pre-pregnancy state. Maybe.

I chalked it up to having the runs and raging roids, but I guess that what others have suggested about things contracting back make sense too.

I had something similar with ds #1 - mine was a shooting type that I had to move, and as quick as it came it was gone. MW said it could be from things repositioning, or it could be a hormonal reaction and could last a while - I think it lasted about 4-5 months or so.

Yeah, sorry, probably not what you wanted to hear, eh?

But, it did lessen over time (severity of the shooting)
