    Default Is this Braxton Hicks?

    What does Braxton Hicks feel like? This is my second pregnancy, and I never felt it with my first. I went to the midwives appointment few weeks ago and while she was listening to baby's hear beat she goes 'oh thats a braxton hicks'. But I didnt feel anything?

    I have been feeling tightenings in my stomach, but it feels more like the baby is just stretching out, or is that braxton hicks? Its not painful at all! Not even uncomfortable, belly is hard to touch though and it lasts about 30sec and one side of my belly seems to poke out more. Happen quite a lot in a day.

    Thanks

    Definitely BH. It doesn't hurt most of the time but it can on the odd occasion make u uncomfortable.
