question re: contractions

Can you have a contraction and still feel
the baby move during it? I have been having contractions this afternoon but sometimes I feel him moving during them and I get confused if its him or a real contraction?!

If it is real, you most likely, will only feel pain! I don't recall ever feeling baby move with have a contraction.

Re: question re: contractions

I can feel movement in the early stages of labor, but not once the head is engaged and transistion starts. I felt kicking close to the end with DS.

Re: question re: contractions

I felt Ds2 moving right up to delivery, even during contractions. Most often though, I felt him move right after a contraction.
