    braxton hicks?

    im starting to realise that i think this is what im feeling!!

    is it like a tightening of your tummy... not painful, but a little uncomfy? i feel as though my tummy has gone all hard, and i cant sit comfortably.. am i having BH?

    ive never really understood what they were, and dont really remember having them with DD.

    yep that sounds like BH. i can remember that feeling though i didn't realise at the time. one time when i was having an ultrasound i felt that pressure feeling and the doc told me i was having BH. i thought it was DS pushing out with his hand or foot

    how exciting! your uterus is practising for the big one!

    Sounds like Bh`s Rach, I`ve been getting them since 15/16 weeks and for the last 5 weeks they`ve been very uncomfortable, lucky me!!!!!

    isnt it funny i never even considered what BH actually feel like, when i know they're quite common all through the pregnancy! it just sort of hit me thats what i must be feeling!
