what exactly do they feel like? and how do they differ from braxton hicks? i've had braxton hicks for the past few weeks. i thought i was having them today but these feel different.  like they hurt a lot more than normal and i feel an extreme amount of pressure in my pelvic area. and im extremely nauseated? i don't know if that's relevant to anything. i'm just wondering what to be on the lookout for.

btw, according to my due date im almost 33 weeks but my doctor keeps telling me to expect her before christmas so i really need info... thanks :)

That's about the way it felt when I was in labor with both of my children. For my they felt like cramps in my back and stomach, there was alot of pressure in the pelvic area as well. My braxton hicks weren't painful, but every woman is different in her prgnancy. I would time them if I were you. Also you should probably call your doctor and talk with him/her about it. I hope this helps. Good luck.
