What do Braxton Hicks feel like Lock Rss

Hi everyone i am 34 weeks pregnant. This is my second child. With my first i dont think i ever got Braxton Hicks contractions. Can someone tell me what they feel like and when most likely start.

Danielle, Vic

I am pregnant with #3 and I have had them since about 16 weeks this time. I can only explain it as a tightening. For me my tummy goes hard and I feel like my bladder has suddenly gotten full. I also sometimes get a bit of pain with them - like my stomach muscles cramp up but mostly they are pain free.

With my 2nd pregnancy I had them later, maybe from 30 weeks onwards and they felt the same.

With my 1st - I didn't really get them that much at all.

Good Luck and Best Wishes, not long to go now smile .
