What do these feel like? Something was going on last night and I wasn't in any pain but I just felt different.

I asked my doctor on Monday what they were/what they felt like...and she said that they felt like period cramps that would come and go or they also feel like a hard ball in your tummy that contracts. This made sense to me because there have been times that I have felt the period type of cramps and some hurt more than others but they always go away fairly soon.
What did yours feel like? Hopefully they are gone now!

I did feel crampy and my stomach was hard in a spot. I just told myself maybe it was the baby's head or butt! Hmm I'll have to pay more attention next time I feel that. I just remember thinking something felt off.

I have def heard the "hard ball" or "hard spot" in your belly area is the easiest way to tell if it's BH or not. I haven't had any yet, but that's what I've heard.

Then this must have been bh because I remember telling DH to fele the hard stop then after rolling over a few time to get comfy I felt again and it wasn't hard anymore. At least it wasn't painful. I'm not ready for pain.

I usually feel a weird breathless sort of sensation too, like when you're on a rollercoaster or something. Then a gradual tightening and then release. Sometimes they are uncomfortable, sometimes not.

Yeah more like what Marybeth said. I wouldn't describe them like period cramps at all... Sometimes I get crampy but that's a different thing.

It's like a breathless downward squeezey pressurey belly hardening.

I completely agree with the breathless part. My stomach usually tightens and literally looks like a square or a lump on either side of my belly button. Most of mine are uncomfortable but that is because my stomach gets sooo tight. I have heard they typically last from 15-30 seconds. That sounds about right for what I feel.

My entire stomach gets hard, I find it hard to catch my breath and I can feel it pulling the muscles on my sides into my lower back.

It's strange though because they aren't painful, but feels like my entire midsection is strung tight.

Mine are definitely the hard to catch your breath type. Usually, that's the first sign for me, then I realize my midsection is kinda tight and restricted. I don't feel crampy, barely even uncomfortable even, other than the not being able to catch my breath...
