I've been researching about them and such but I just wanted an opinion from people who are actually going through or have gone through them. What do they feel like? Like right now I feel a knotting in my abdomen, almost like a menstrual cramp, is that a BH contraction? I'm so confused, guys.

BH are painless but really uncomfortable because your stomach tightens up like a rock! sometimes it's difficult to breathe..

If it hurts like a menstrual cram it shouldn't, the rn @ the dr office said contractions (not braxton hicks) feel like severe menstrual cramps and if you are contracting every 5 mins for an hour then its time. I have been contractions since 36wks and having menstrual like cramps and sharp pains down there and I'm 1cm dialated..

So..... I'm having normal contractions, not BH? lol I'm confused too... What I keep feeling are sharp, cramping pains... sometimes along the bottom of my tummy.. sometimes a little higher.. sometimes low in my groin area. Other times I feel the same kind of sharp pain that I was having when I was in labor with my son, and others it's that pain but in my hooha. :lol:

I get them off and on all day long but they don't come in any timed intervals. It's annoying.
