  • Braxton Hicks it sounds like...they are practice contractions that your body has to prepare for the birth....mine started at about 30 weeks...

  • Depending on how far along you are it could be BH contractions. I started getting them a little bit ago and now at 38 weeks, i'm getting them usually at night time, 4 or 5 times every 2 hours or so. There are quite a few times where she feels like she will pop out of my belly button though LOL. I wouldn't worry as long as your not having any sort of horrible sharp pains :)

  • I get like that when mine is streching out she really pushes out on my belly button or my side. I've never really gotten BH so I don't know if thats what that feels like. either way it doesn't sound like anything bad.
