I'm getting these pains off and on and they HURT. It half feels like gas and half feels like my stomach is tightening. I feel like I have to use the bathroom but don't have to.

I can't remember what Braxton hicks feel like.. Can they be painful? Or does this sound more like gas pains that are intense?

They're not coming regularly and I don't think I have to go to the er but I promised my mom I would if they keep up much longer. I just don't want to sit there for hours to be told I have to fart lol

BH arent supposed to hurt. I have been having them and i could see how they might feel like gas. Mine are def uncomfortable, but not painful. They go away when i drink more water...are you hydrated?

I actually had some cramping yesterday too while at the park and my stomach was getting hard. We left and I sat down and they eased up. Was weird. I got Braxton hicks a lot with my 2nd pregnancy but they didn't hurt it was just the tightening feeling.

Thanks ladies! These ended up easing up and I fell asleep, so they were definitely not anything bad!

I'm still not sure which they were though because I only got them laying on my back (I was trying to go to bed), but once I laid on the left side is when they totally stopped. Maybe a mix of BH and gas?? lol

This may be TMI, but have you not been regular lately? I have noticed that whenever I haven't "Gone" in a day or two, that I get crampy and/or lower back aches. I usually drink more water and eat an apple to get some fiber in me then I can go. Just an idea to throw out there!

I agree that it may be constipation related. I also notice that when I haven't gone in a day or two that I get uncomfortable cramps/pains. Up your water intake for sure!!
