emisi:I've been feeling BH for a while, especially if I stand up too fast, stand up too long, or are dehydrated. I try to avoid any of those things and it helps.
Ditto this, for a couple of weeks now. Much more frequently and earlier than with my first, but that doesn't shock me.
The first time I had one was in the middle of the night. It was kind of a shock and it hurt. I tried to move positions and couldn't. After I figured out what it was, they aren't as shocking or painful, and it's actually kind of fun when you can see your belly change shape.
Remember it's "practice" contractions, so use them to practice your breathing and coping techniques :)
I think I figured out that's what was happening to me last week. It has happened every few days, but it definitely doesn't hurt. Just feels tight with a bit of pressure. Sometimes when I hold urinating too long, I seem to notice a tightening right after and my belly seems very round/ball-like.
