  • My stomach would get tight and I would feel some discomfort, but not pain like a real contraction. Just a long, strong, period cramp...

  • That's what my regular contractions felt like... a long strong period cramp.
    I couldn't feel my Braxton Hicks contractions at all, my midwife told me I was having them at a visit.

  • Mine didn't feel like cramps but my stomach muscles would tighten up, it was weird b/c you could see my stomach move up then down. They didn't hurt but they did get annoying at times.
