    Was in a meeting today and suddenly got what felt like a very painful stitch across the bottom of my tummy for about 3 min.

    They say that the difference between a REAL contraction, and BH contractions are like the difference between the tightness when you press a finger on your forehead(real contractions) and the tip of your nose (BH Contractions).

    :)
    Sorry it hurt hun, but BH are different for everyone. BH Aren't supposed to get more intense,and they're more annoying then anything. Whereas the real contractions continue to get closer, and worse with intensity.

    :hugs:

    From about 28 weeks on I got a few of these really intense stitch like pains low down across my abdomen - the kind where they really caught my breath and made me panic that something was happening. I asked my mw who said it was actually ligament pain from all the stretching and growing that was going on and not to worry. Seemed to stop around and about 33 weeks.
