  • Below I would guess if you are a small person like if you are all belly. I have a pouch from my last baby and that spot doesnt get tense. Sorry But if you arent all belly then I really dont know what to tell you

  • yea its suppose to be the whole stomach, but my first baby i had back labor and i would feel cramps in my sides and back, and i would push on my belly and it never got hard.

  • i never got braxton hicks but a real strong contraction can almost bring you to the floor. i didnt get an epidural with both boys and i felt everything, some are worse than others. i felt them all around the bottom of my belly and a little in my back. i walked, a lot. its easy to breath through them though. a birthing ball or exercise ball can relieve most of the pressure
