  • braxton hicks contractions just feel like your stomach is getting tight w/ out pain. the real ones feel like really bad cramps.

  • BH and real contractions feel the same to me... I've been to the ER sooo many times with BH they will probably send me home when I'm actually in labor! lol, but the only way I know how to tell between the BH and the real are to time them to see if they are getting closer or what. Oh and waiting for my water to break. :-P

  • yep, i just got out of the hospital last night with HORRIBLE contractions. When they are evenly timed out is when 'real contractions" start - which the dr said they are contractions nun the less....I just haven't dialated more yet, if you are unsure - go on in, i felt Id rather like to know than be too scared to just go and ask whats goin on. good luck
