Stupid question but.....

What do braxton hicks contractions feel like??? With my daughter (4) I didnt feel anything until I actually went into labor and even then it was just feeling like I needed to use the bathroom...how do you know if your having braxton hicks?

  • It might be different with everyone but mine just felt like my stomach muscles tightening up. My stomach would literally get hard. I didn't have the full on pain. Just a little discomfort.
