What do Braxton Hicks contractions feel like? I've had two kids, but never experienced these..

Now, with this baby, I'm feeling some tightening in my lower stomach.. Is that it?

  • They feel like a tightening of your abdomen without the pain associated with real labor contractions. You can sometimes see the skin on your stomach become very tight and your baby bump become fairly rounded.

  • Mine didn't hurt that bad. My stomach would get hard and that's how I would know but they didn't really hurt. If I drank a glass of water and lay down on my left side they would stop.
