I'm 27 weeks and 6 days pregnant. And I'm having I think is Braxton Hicks Contractions. They aren't really painful but I've notice them more when I'm walking and stuff. They start from my back / side and my stomach gets tight and hard. So my question is does this sound like BH Contractions?

Yes. As long as you don't have cramping like your period or 8 in an hour you should be ok. I hate them.

Sound like BH contractions to me. I've had them multiple times throughout my pregnancy. I just started to get real contractions with the last few weeks (I'm 37 weeks now)

Okay. And this is my first pregnancy so I really don't know what to expect.

I am also 27 weeks and I been having them since I was 25 weeks. Walking is when it gets me the most too.. It is the same places where mine start. In and out.(Like they always say in birthing class) Rub your belly and relax. It makes it easier to pass. Almost like when you are in labor and the real contraction starts but last longer and get stronger.
