  • They are braxton hicks contractions - practice contractions basically.

    When you say it hurts really bad is it the tightening that hurts, or is it the baby kicking afterword?

    If it is the tightening then you need to go into the doctor ASAP. If it is the baby thats normal.

  • If I remember correctly I had this happen too and my midwives told me that it was just my muscles in my stomach preparing for labor and birth. IF I remember correctly, but dont 100% quote me on it.
