I was wondering if they are "false labor" contractions. I have an ultrasound in a couple of hours, so Im going to ask my doctor about it as well.
And I agree the pain was pretty bad I would say about a 7 as well. With our first daughter I had an epidural and was planning on doing a natural delivery this time. But after last night, it just makes me feel like such a wimp! Like there is no way I could handle ALL of labor if I was that uncomfortable.
