    Evening all!!

    All night, on and off, my tummy has been going really hard. It doesn't hurt at all, if anything it feels nice?! :blush:
    At the same time my back is REALLY hurting. Not just at the bottom but all over. Is this Braxton Hicks? And is it possible that the pain in the back is being caused by them instead of in my tummy/

    Thanks

    It could be Braxton Hicks the tightening -- it doesn't have to hurt & the nurses, doctors, midwives will probably tell you they are painless (even though that's definitely not always the case lol)

    Not sure on the back pain though! Do you think it's related to the tightening or is it sore on its own?

    I get BH quite frequently now. And yes, I get the back spasms to boot.
    Was told it is quite possible to happen for some women because the muscles are all connected.

    I am usually a small framed, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it. Are you of small frame as well? I also only put weight on in my bump. Not really anywhere else. What about you?
