Tight waistbands and BH's?

I'm probably not the only one, but thought I'd check. When I wear pants with snug waistbands, no matter how narrow or wide, I definitely get more Braxton Hicks. Anyone else? It's like my uterus is rejecting the tension, LOL. I'm positive it's not dehydration, because I'm drinking more water than my bladder can process (Not really, but it feels like it some days).

Yes I do notice more BH with a tight waist band. I don't know if I have more or am just more aware of even the slight ones.

I haven't necessarily experienced this with tight waistbands, but those NST straps ALWAYS ramp up my contractions. Baby doesn't like them much either, kicks like mad!

Hmm, maybe that's what's happening. I don't know. They sure seem more intense though . . .
