Well, that's what I call them at least. With DS, when everything got all hard, I thought it was the baby pushing every direction at once. This time, I was talking to a friend due 5 days before me and she was asking about it. As I listened to her description, I knew it was BH. Then I realized that's what I was doing too! Second time around, certified CBE, goodness, you'd think I'd know these things! Well, knowing for other people is good too, I wish I could figure them out for what I'm going through too.

Fun part is, my friend and I are very much in sync. When she asked, and I felt her "stiffy," right after I had one too. She's the one I want with me to help with DS at the birth, so I hope I go into labor first. Then she can follow and my MW can catch her baby too. If she goes first, and I'm there to support her as planned, then I might end up with an unplanned hospital birth. =)

I've got BH CONSTANTLY! I've been getting them since around 20 weeks or so, they are much more frequent now, like at least one every hour or so

Oh man, THOSE are BHC?! I thought they were supposed to hurt or something...

and all this time, I thought my baby was just a big pusher or something.
