Is there any reason that when i am having a braxton h. Contraction, that not only does my stomach tighten up, but i feel A LOT of pressure in my head, like i've been hanging upside down for a long time. Anyone else experience this?

  • Yes, that is exactly what all of my BH feel like. I'm pregnant with my 3rd baby now and I had that feeling with all three. Sometimes the weird feeling starts in my head first before the tightening. I feel like it has something to do with my blood pressure. I have low blood pressure and when it drops it makes my head feel funny.

  • no, but it would definitly be something to ask your OB or midwife.

  • yeah talk to your practitioner. I have a ton of BH and never have they made my head feel like that.
