Anyone having Braxton hicks?
I don't ever remember feeling them at all with DD pregnancy, but I have def. been having them for a few weeks now. Very low and nice and tight. I hear that they can be a real doozy in subsequent pregnancies and you often feel them earlier and stronger with each pregnancy.
Certainly not unusual, but you can sit down and drink some water to help them pass. Also mindfullness to your motions--lots of bending over and using your abs can add to the intensity.
As far as I understand they can feel different to each person, but mainly have been explained as a tightening or hardening of the bump, or contraction like pains.
I have been getting them too, and was really worried, but have finally given in to it now. I am apparently just one of those women who get good hard painful ones!! It happens esp if I have been pushing myself or hold my bladder for too long!
They feel like sharp stabby contractions in my cervix and vagina. But thats just me :)
