Braxton Hicks??
Ok, you would think being this is my fourth pregnancy, third to have made it this far, I'd have experienced Braxton Hicks contractions before .. but, no. I have not. Or at least not to my knowledge... lol

The one time I thought it might be Braxton Hicks with Mehkaelie, it turned out to be full on contractions and after hydrating and rest in the hospital they stopped.

So... What do they feel like?

I've been having random (not timeable) extreme tightening in my uterus'y area.. lol Geez, does that even make sense? Really low in my tummy, JUST above my pelvic bone.. It literally feels like someone has just wrapped something around that section of me and started pulling, really, really tight.

It doesn't hurt though. No pain, just that odd tightening sensation.

I've ruled out needing to go to the restroom or anything like that.

SOunds like they are def BH hun. BH arent supposed to be painful, just a weird tightening sensation. I never felt them with jake, but have had a few with this pregnancy.

Hope they stay few and far between!

Thanks Robyn! I called the dr on Monday to ask them about it and that's what they said, too. Almost word for word lol :) I'm glad to know what they are, it is very strange!
