Re: Braxton Hick's contractions??
i started having mine early in my preg. about 16-20 weeks or so.
they are normal....and wont hurt you or the baby.
now how i could tell the difference in the real thing from BHicks is that it felt like the worse menstral cramp I have ever had.....
you will know the diff.
ohh and to answer your ?
they feel like exactly what you described....tighting of the uterus, usually with no pain sometimes with.
my dr. said that if you have more than 5-6 in one hours go to the hospital just to be safe.
although i had up to sometimes 8 and 10 in an hour...went the the dr. and it was nothing.
you are far enough along to not worry to much about these, even if it was real labor at this point the baby should be fine.
(i had my daughter at 36.5 weeks)
