Just realized that I think I’ve been having braxton hicks contractions…. for weeks now (I’m 27 weeks) I’ve been feeling a sudden pressure in my lower abdomen, but not at all painful, I totally thought it was just the baby arching against my stomach making it hard as a rock. Then it goes away.
But I just read in my baby book about braxton hicks contractions and it sounds the same…I had no idea! First time Mom learning I guess!

@Sunshine09: I learnt about them 2 weeks ago when I saw a friend who had experienced them and she told me all about them.

I had the same thing happen to me! I am 21 weeks and it felt like the baby just stretching and come to find out it was BH’s.

I was having them constantly a few weeks ago for like 2 weeks straight. It started out just uncomfortable but some were painful. I googled it and was relieved it was just BH contractions. I have 3 kids already and don’t remember ever having BH with any of their pregnancies. I kinda freaked a little and went in to get checked just to make sure I wasn’t dilating. I should be a veteran by now but every pregnancy is different and since it’s been like 5 years since my last pregnancy, it’s like everything is all new again.
