Wondering if anyone else has experienced this. So yesterday I started to have the weirdest pain in my rectal area. Excuse me for the lovely imagery, but I told DH that it felt like someone was putting a knife up my butt or something! (Hence the thread title). There was also a lot of pressure with it. The pain would last about five seconds before going away and was becoming frequent (every five minutes or so).
Anyway, I freaked out and called L&D at my hospital because I didn't know what the heck was going on. I'm a FTM and have no clue what contractions might feel like. The nurse I spoke with didn't seem terribly concerned, she just told me to come in if the pain got any worse or more frequent.
Eventually over the course of the evening the pains stopped, and I didn't think too much of it, until I called my mom just now and told her what the pains felt like. She said that it sounded like how she experienced contractions too, and that it sounded like possible back labor? I'm only 34+3 so obviously this baby needs to keep cooking, and I'm thankful the pains went away eventually. But has anyone else felt contractions similiar to the pain I described?
