    Default Real or fake?

    If a Braxton hicks contraction takes your breath away is it a real contraction or just a Braxton hicks? There's no pain, just tightening. It's been happening for the past few days but they are still irregular..

    Braxton Hicks can take your breath away. I had it all the time.

    Yes they can really make you think they are the real thing. It's true what they say though - you know when real labour starts, there is no question in your mind 'this is it'.
