I get a sensation in my tummy and then it goes really really tight like my skin is contracting. I feels like your stomach lining isnt big enough for your stomach. Mine arent sore, just a bit weird and sometimes uncomfy. x
I did t realize I was getting them right away. But eventually they may get a bit stronger after a few weeks but not painful in any way. I only started to notice them when I was bending over or leaning forward and it would feel like my belly was even more in the way than it usually is and I noticed it was all tight. It feels different than baby pushing out cuz my whole bump goes hard and I know he's not that big to be able I do that.
to me they feel like....
my stomach gets super hard especially at the top just under my boobs. i can breathe slightly easier during one, the are painless, and sometimes feels like the baby is moving and then ill touch my belly and its a BH contraction.....
i hope that helps!
I have no idea what they feel like, do they hurt, how do you know if you're having them? Do they feel like any other kind of pain/ache?
If someone could describe what they feel like in detail I'd really appreciate it, thanks!
It is different for everyone how they feel. I didnt get ANY until I was almost 36 weeks. And how I know that is what they are is I went to L&D because I was having these mild period pains all across my pelvis and I got hooked up to the monitor and the doctor told me I was having them - although irregular/no pattern.
So for me, they are sore/achey and in my pelvis. I don't get any tightening at all. However, my bump is already extremely tight because of all the stretching so that may be why I don't notice any tightenings.
Generally, you can feel a tightening like I described above, and also a mild period type of pain. It should never be excruciating. HTH
