    Hiya!
    For me it feels like the bottom of my stomach goes really hard and tight and feels really heavy for a few secs. They don't hurt but I hear for some people they do. Some people don't get them at all!

    Good Luck xx

    same as what soon2bmum said.. some times all the sudden ill feel the bottom of my belly real tight for a few seconds and other times ill feel it coming slowly and my belly gets tighter and tighter till it reaches a peak then starts easing off those are the type that my doctor told me to be aware of and make sure i don't have more than 5 in one hour.
    oh btw with my first I didnt get any at all. with this one they started at 18 weeks.

    Well a few weeks ago i started getting what i thought were BH's, and my belly would go incredibly tight and hard like it was scrunching up into a ball around my belly button and then after a couple of seconds would relax. They weren't painful just a bit uncomfy really, and strange to watch.

    This morning though i have been getting the same thing but they actually ARE painful and like a horrible AF cramp or like i ate something dodgy and am about to regret it! So either the first ones weren't BH's, or else my BH's have stepped it up a notch, or else these new ones aren't BH's :shrug:

    OH did some research online before he went to work (i think i was making him nervous having so many close together, lol) and concluded, in his wisdom, that they ARE braxton hicks, but if they get any worse i am to call triage!

    Hope that helps?! :thumbup:
