    Default Braxton hicks?

    Okay this might sound stupid but my last pregnancy i never got braxton hicks. Well if i did i never ever noticed them. So they feel like mild period pains and the hardening of the stomach but arent supposed to be painful, right? Well last night i was laying in bed and i think i got a really bad one. Pain was bareable but enough to make me feel uncomfortable and want it to just go away as well as the tightening of my stomach. Then this morning i woke up and felt like i had to go to the toilet as i just got the worst cramping bowel feeling like when you have diarrhea. Ive been getting these on and off so not regular enough to be contractions.
    Could this mean labour isnt far away or is my body playing tricks on me

    Sounds like pre-labour not BH Doesn't really mean labour is close or far away though!
