  • Braxton hicks do indeed hurt. I had them for three months.

  • Oh....and the sharp pains are probably ligaments. Its pretty common.

  • I had BH with previous 2 pregnancies. The first I had no painful BH contractions. My second one... OUCH!!!!! But they usually do not cause you to feel like you need to urinate.... and they usually do not cause sharp pains in the vaginal area. BHs are usually abdomen area...
