This is my first baby & I don't know if I've had Braxton Hicks contractions or not. About 5 different times I did have something happen...maybe BH? It is either when I first start eating or am almost done eating, and it feels like a stomach cramp, but its my whole belly and it fells tight, like its being pushed out kind of. It doesn't feel very good and last about a minute or so. But there is usually no definate moment where it ends. Do you think it's a BH? Does it have anything to do with eating or just a coincident? Or do you think I'm just eating to fast or something??? hehe Thanks!

I think that sounds like BH. I've been getting them recently, but haven't noticed any corelation between them and eating. Sex definately brings them on though.

But yeah, that's what it feels like for me, everything is just really hard all of a sudden, then after a minute or so it gradually just goes away. I don't have any cramping with mine.

Sounds like BH to me. Maybe you just notice them more because you are sitting down and not too distracted? Or maybe eating just brings them on for you. Mine seem to be more frequent now, I do notice them sometimes when I'm eating. It's like you describe, the whole belly gets tight and kind of sticks out a little.
