Re: What do Braxton-Hicks feel like?

Mine are never painful. They're just tightenings. I usually feel them because they compress my bladder.

I can't compare them to regular labor contractions as I had back labor. But I highly doubt real contractions are anything like the braxton hicks that I get.

and, for the record, my BH were all in the front even though every single one of my labor contractions was in my back. I don't think they're related. I think they're individual things caused by 2 different scenarios.
