  • Yes, they felt like bad cramps.
    I started with them Jan. 19 and had them EVERYDAY, ALL DAY, until I finally gave birth on Feb. 23!

  • I've only had painful BH once. That was a week or two ago, I think. I think it was because I had to use the bathroom as well, though, so I think that pressure was making the BH contractions hurt. I haven't had any painful ones since though =]

  • Yes, they do feel like bad cramps! I am due in 5 weeks and I am getting them every day and will up to the day of my delivery.

    Good luck!
