I am the queen of BH contractions! I have had them since about 6 months, but these last few weeks (I'm 33 weeks right now) have become intense. Okay, sometimes they're painful like theres a feeling of sort of period type cramping down low and then your whole stomach/uterus becomes tight and SUPER hard like a rock. You would be able to feel it if you touched it, it's extremely hard. Then it softens up after a minute or so. So basically it feels like a big but for the most part painless CHARLIE horse in your entire stomach, usually concentrated more so in one place, like it's tight everywhere, but where I mostly feel it is the center around my belly button. Sometimes I won't realize I'm having one I'll think the baby is doing something weird and then I'll touch my stomach and realize, oh yeah... two days ago I had probably 30 throughout the day, but my midwife says until they become painful, regular or there is fluid, not to worry.
Hope that helps some, let me know if you still need more info.
