Um, am I having BH contrax?

I can't feel any pain or anything but I'm in bed and I swear it feels like I have done a million sit ups my stomach muscles are so sore! No pain or anything. Honestly, I wouldn't even suspect them except my tummy muscles hurt and they have no reason to. Am I having BH?? I never had them with DD so I have no idea what they're like

Is your tummy getting hard? I always get BH contractions, but have never experienced them as sore stomach muscles. If your uterus isn't getting hard my guess is its just muscles aches.

ETA: I do get sore stomach muscles while pg though! I always figured it was them separating.

could be round ligament pain too! that hurts like a biotch and leaves me sore for a long while. Ifit persists a warm bath should help!!!

with bh's, I usually feel the tightening, although I generally have some pain also.

With BH your uterus squeezes hard, you can almost see the outline of the baby it can go so tight. Sometimes mine are very painful but the pain is in the front and not the whole uterus like a real contraction. I would suspect you are having round ligament pain which is the uterus and the area around it all stretching and moving.... I get this bad, sometimes I'm hurting all day.

That is exactly how my BH are too!
