With my first pregnancy, I did not feel any B-H contractions the whole time, as far as I know.<br><br>
This time, every evening when I'm making dinner I feel this tight pulling feeling across the top of my uterus, up close to my ribcage. It's not painful or anything, but it makes me feel short of breath for a bit.<br><br>
Does this sound like B-H?<br><br>
Thanks!

sounds like it to me. I never had them with my first, but have had them with all three since then. I usually get them if I've been on my feet for awhile, like when I'm cleaning, cooking, shopping, etc. No pain, just tightening and it does make me feel sort of short of breath. I usually just sit down for a few minutes and relax and it will loosen up

Thanks! I suspected it was but just wasn't sure. Maybe this will help my labor go more smoothly, one can always hope!
