BH contractions that is :)

i never had them with my dd...but think i might be getting them this time around. i get them everyday....prob about 10 of them thru out the day.

they feel like weak period cramps. im not sure if that is BH contractions or something bad. im just worried because i have no idea what they feel like...

They always say your tummy gets tight, but mine never did.

with mine, my whole stomach would just tighten up and be rock hard and then it would soften.

It feels like my uterus gets really tight and hard for about 20 seconds.

I get the same feeling sometimes... and that's the best thing to compare it to is weak period cramps. I'm pretty sure it's BH though, because it's like everything in there tightens for a bit, then I can feel it release.

I never had BH with my first pregnancy NOT ONE!! But with my second I started having them by 10 wks and I had them every day until I delivered. By about 36 wks I had contractions almost every night 5 min apart and they would last 8-12 hrs before they would fade away. I really hope I don't have them with this pregnancy that bad. But yes they feel like menstral cramps or a tightning in your belly!! By the way I delievered at 38 wks!

this is what my at home care nurse told me,

they can feel like any of these things

cramping

tightning

dull lower back pain

i get all three at this point! But yeah cramping is normal if it makes you feel really uncomfortable or makes you worrie just give yourself a time out and lay down with a glass of water.Alot times for me if i just relax and lay down they will stop.

good luck!!! i went threw this too because i never had them with my first baby either.

IDK either! which is weird, becuase this is my 4th, so you'd think i would know...however, there are so many vague descriptions, i imagine i've had them all along, but i never notice them! sometimes i get a crampy type feeling in my lower belly, lasts a few seconds to maybe 30 seconds, so maybe thats it? but i'm so busy and active, i never pay attention to them.
