So, what do Braxton Hicks/contractions feel like?
Mom to 2-year old twin boys, Dawson & Devin
Sometimes my braxtons hurt like that, and sometimes they just feel really intense, and others, i'm like, "Hey, my belly's all hard!
Thanks for your response!
It could be a contraction, or a b/h or ligament pain like the PP said. How's that for helpful - lol? If it was a contraction and you only had one it isn't much to worry about.
I've been having a lot of B/H. Usually they hit at the end of the day if I've done too much. Some of them have been a little intense but not like a regular contraction. My stomach gets really hard in front & sometimes painful, sometimes not so much.
I have had a few contractions - usually when I'm doing a lot of bending and lifting and haven't had enough to drink. For me, they start in my back and the pain comes around the front until it meets in the middle escalating in intensity. I didn't have to breathe through them but they were definitly uncomfortable enough that I didn't want to be doing anything else. I didn't have too many and I know my cervix is pretty long - over 5cm at my last ultrasound - so I wasn't too worried but I'd be lying if I didn't say it did kind of scare me.
When I have RLP it's usually on the bottom part of my stomach and on the sides. The pain generally stays in the same area & is just really, really uncomfortable & it feels like I'm being stretched out way further than any person should!
Above all else guard your heart, for it affects all you do. Proverbs 4:23
LOL...now I really don't know what I felt!
Robin - I was surprised by the question last week when the dr asked me about any contractions.
Yes, they ask me every time too and I always thought that when it happened I would know.
For me they are just uncomfortable, but not painful.
I haven't read the replies you've received so far, so maybe someone else suggested this, but to me it sounds more like ligament pain.
