so I *think* I've had a couple of these. I just feel my ute tighten really hard for a short bit and then I can poke it and it feels softer again.
I was talking to my sister and mom about this last night and they're both like, NO, that's NOT a Braxton Hicks. It feels like a REAL contraction and it's accompanying by a shooting pain in your cervix.
Now, it's been close to 32 years since either of them had a baby (they were actually pregnant at the same time with me and my neice), and I thought that these "practice contractions" actually didn't do much to your cervix, so why would I feel it there?
but they insisted that I'll KNOW when it's a Braxton Hicks and that it will be horribly painful. I thought that these "practice" contractions weren't all that bad.
what say you, my Braxton-Hicks Contracting Sisters?
