Question Starting to feel contractions in the front of my thighs!

I was wondering if this happens to anyone else?

When I went into the hospital w/ my 1st I was talking to a nurse about my contractions and how they were REALLY making my thighs ACHE!... and that I had never heard of that (I did LOTS of preg/baby research while I was preg.) The nurse told me that she was an OB nurse for 5 years before she had her 1st baby & had never heard of this either until she went into labor & experienced it.

I get sciatic pains that are in my butt & run down the backs of my legs but this is different... it's the fronts of my thighs & is felt sometimes around the sides as well. Most women talk about their contractions starting at the back or sides of their stomaches & moving towards the middle/front. Mine start in the middle of my stomach and take their way down my thighs.

Anyone else? or is this as rare as the nurse was painting it to be?

Babies #1 & #2 had a lot of inner thigh pain and #3 was in my inner thighs to the fronts of my thighs. I labored in a half squat for most of the 2 3/4 hours #3 took to arrive. It was the only thing that made it remotely bearable.

Humm... I will have to try that (if I remember ) I was also thinking about warm compresses on my thighs... since people use them for back labor... why not thigh labor

I tried a rice sock warmer, but because of how I had to stand it wouldn't stay put. And I couldn't stand anyone trying to hold them up there. I've wondered if those stick on heat packs would have worked...the kind that they advertise for back pain and such.

i know exactly what you're talking about!! i've been feeling them too, on the front of my thighs, on and off but no actual labor yet. with both of my daughters, my whole back and thighs were so painful they were practically numbed. i also have sciatica too, and like you, on my right upper side to my right buttock.

I felt that when I was in transition. It helped to have pressure applied to my thighs. It was awful.
