Painful Braxton Hicks????

I woke up this morning with pain radiating over my whole belly, from the top under my boobs and down. It lasted for about a minute after I woke up and then went away. I was quite scared. I'm 21 weeks, and for one thing I didn't think that braxton hicks could start this early (but checking my what to expect when you're expecting book...apparently it does start this early). Anyways, it was quite painful...can braxton hicks hurt????

Re: Painful Braxton Hicks????

apparently they can! I have been having them for about 3 weeks and sometimes mine can be a little painful. Now, this is baby #4 for me and I never had them with my others until the last week or so. But I also checked and it is quite commen to start feeling them around week 20. I was told as long as you don't have more than 5 in one hour and of course you are not in major pain they are fine. I have them alot when I change positions while lying down or stand up to quickly.

Re: Painful Braxton Hicks????

yes, i started braxton hicks when i was around 15 weeks pregnant! my stomach would get hard and then relax. around 5-6 months i started getting painful contractions which scared me my midwife said i am allowed to have a few in my pregnancy as long as they dont get stronger and frequent. she said if you have to pee, are dehydrated or stressed, contractions will come. i am 36weeks now and i started getting more painful contractions but everything is fine i wouldnt worry too much its a natural thing.
