Re: Some thoughts - contractions

Yes I think it does have to do with your uterus "burning" like you're running. When I started lifting weights after my first was born I really felt that there was a similarity there. This is why RRL tea and Vitamin D supplementation may help with labor pain- they make the uterine muscle more efficient and not have to work quite as hard during contractions for the same effect
