fake contraction or BH?

I have this pain/pressure at the bottom of my belly and sometimes i have pain in between my stomach and left leg, it comes and goes. Sometimes it comes when I'm walking and sometimes it comes when I get up to the bathroom. The pain is mild, but uncomfortable. Is it braxton hicks?

  • it could just be the position of the baby. you will feel contractions all over your belly, even if they are bh. if the baby is dropping you will feel pressure on your hip and pelvic bones.

  • Braxton Hicks Contractions are fake contractions, and that's what it sounds like. They can be uncomfortable and mildly painful.
