yep. tummy goes hard as a rock all over (not just where bubba is pushing)
i found sometimes they quite litterally took my breat away but BH have no pattern and should not be too painful, just uncomfortable.
shows somethin hun.... you getting closer
Friends are the family you choose yourself and I love my JM sisters!
The only difference between real contractions and braxton hicks contractions are that real ones change your cervix. My BH this pregnancy have been very painful at times.
But if changing position or drinking water or anything gets rid of them, then they're not real.
And just because they have no pattern doesn't mean they're not real. I spent the night in L&D at 33 weeks with Erin because I had a bad UTI that was putting me into labor. Those contractions weren't particularly painful and didn't really have a pattern either. But they didn't go away and they were softening my cervix, so they were "real."
As long as they go away, you're fine though. Even if it doesn't FEEL fine at the time!
