im 23 weeks pregnant with identical twins. i dont know what they feel like but whenever i get up from sitting or even when i just stand for a few minutes it feels like i have a walking cramp (you know, when you try to exercise but are too out of shape lol). it feels different than round ligament pain and it doesnt really hurt. when it sit it feels like i just got done doing a billion crunches and when i stand it feels like those walking cramps. help!

I had BHC's starting at 20w 2d. They suck!

My BHC started around 13 weeks. I could tell when I was having them because every single morning I'd wake up with a lump on my right side that was rock hard and after a minute or so it would relax. I started paying attention to the sensation I was feeling and noticed them throughout the day. This was realized with my first baby.
