  • I started somewhere around 6 months, they can feel like anything from belly tightening to strong period cramps.

  • I'll be honest. I'v e got no idea if I really felt them. I only felt minor cramps, but was never sure if it was a Braxton-Hicks. Everyone always asked me if was having any. They were never consistent nor bothersome.

  • Yep, sounds like Braxton-HIcks. If they ever hurt, stop you in your tracks or begin to follow a pattern then you should definitely tell your Dr right away. These are practice contractions. So if you plan on giving drug free birth practice your relaxtation techniques while you have a braxton-hicks.
