Re: What do Braxton-Hicks feel like?
With my second BH felt like I was just tightening my belly muscles. With my third I couldn't tell the difference between them and regular contractions. I kept thinking I was just remembering 'real' contractions wrong and that I would realize the difference once I was in active labor. Nope! Still couldn't tell the difference between BH, prodromal labor or real labor. I ended up having to teach myself how to check my cervix and the only way I knew I was in real labor was that I could completely feel baby head and no cervix.
