Do any of you have any experience with BH?? The past two days I have had some cramps off and on that only last for about 30-45 seconds. It almost feels like maybe I have to go potty, but then it goes away and I'm fine. I remember when I went into labor with DS that is what the contractions felt like to me at first. I did not have BH with DS at all so I have no clue what this is. Do you think that maybe this is BH or could it just be painful gas?
YUP! Ive started getting them already It pretty much feels like my stomach is a tight ball but after a minute or so it goes back to normal (soft). And normally it happens when Im overdoing it or need to drink more fluids. With DD I didnt even realize they were happening until about 30 sumthin weeks.
I don't "think" Ive had them with any of my pregnancies. That said my mom says i am a freak of nature because I delivered my twins with no meds and NEVER felt a contraction. The nurses had to tell me when to push. With my 3rd DS I walked into my induction at 6 cm dialated, and hadnt felt anything. I ended up with the HIGHEST dose of pitocin they can Legally give you and still delivered him with no meds. I "think" I felt regular contractions with DD (which is why I went to the hospital) and they were registering but weren't painful. She was a csection though cuz she was breech. And with my last I felt some contractions after I was on a high dose of pit (although the only place I really felt them was right where my csection scar is).......he was born by VBAC after like an hour and a half of "real" labor....

I felt another one this morning and I noticed that my stomach does feel like a hard ball when it's happening. I also felt a lot of pressure this morning too, but it has since went away. I guess it is BH. Maybe I am just more tuned into my body with this pregnancy.
Amanda - you are a freak of nature!! LOL! Twins w/ no meds!! This will be my first labor with no meds so send me some of your "no pain" vibes!
Everyone is different and I notice this with birthing as well. I have no idea how you experienced childbirth with no pain, I was screaming with every one that was unmedicated!
I get BH with every pregnancy and with each subsequent pregnancy they start earlier. My uterus gets very hard for about 1 minute and then it goes away, it's not painful at all. They say it's your uterus practicing for real labour, drinking water does not make them go away for me.
