Last week for a whole day I'd feel a tightness in my belly area for about thirty seconds. It wasn't painful, it was more like someone was pulling all my skin back. It actually happened a few times while I was teaching and it was so weird and new I would put my hand on my belly and tell the kids "hold on, baby's doing something". Thankfully my kids are amazing and just waited paitently!
All the moms I talked to said it was Braxton Hicks contractions and I shouldn't worry, my body's just starting the process of getting those muscles strong for the big day.
Any other moms experiencing light BH contractions? What did your mom tribe/ob/midwife/doula say?
