As a first time mom, I have no clue what these feel like however I have been randomly getting a tightening sensation in my abdomen a few times a day. After a quick google search I assume these are Braxton hicks? What do you guys think? There is absolutely no pain, just tightening feeling.

That's what they feel like to me. It's fairly common to start having them in your second and especially in your third trimester. At least you know your body is preparing itself for delivery!!!

Yes, I agree. That's what they feel like. They get a bit stronger as you get further along.

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

Good question, sometimes I feel like my belly gets tight but wasn't sure if that was a BH or not. It's not squeezing or anything. I guess that is what it indeed is.
