  • at first they start out pretty light. and some women may get them without feeling it....but ummm how do you know if you're getting them? (not bashing just really curious). I was dialated to a 4 before i started to feel them, but also had been there for a few days. once they hit for real....i def felt it! and it wasnt real bad til i was in active labor.

  • I don't feel the braxton hicks either...completely painless and unnoticable. I was unable to recognize them until one happened during my midwife visit this afternoon. The belly gets hard -- doesn't hurt -- but feels weird...almost being overfull of food on Thanksgiving.
