    Default Was that a Braxton hicks?

    Hey girls
    Last night I felt like I was having bad period pain but then it would go away. Then it came back again but then slowly went away. Was I feeling Braxton hicks? I'm 32 weeks

    Sounds like it could have been.

    I get them all the time (third baby).

    To me it feels like an intense clenching. I can touch my belly and feel my uterus become a hard ball. It often makes me want to pee. Tends to happen a lot when I get up or am walking.

    At our ante-natal class last week the midwife said that we're all getting Braxton hicks all the time, whether we're aware of it or not. Once she described it I realised I do get them quite regularly. She said it's when the belly goes rock hard, sometimes just in parts. I don't have any pain with mine, just the tensing of the belly and then it settles. I agree jellybeanicecream, if it's down low it makes me want to pee too and I also get them when walking.
