    don't know for sure cos i haven't done it yet...! but from what i gather, they sound like BH - apparently we'll know for sure when the real thing kicks in :shock: :shock: :hug: :hug:

    BHs don't hurt but your tummy goes v tight and uncomfortable. I found that they didn't come in waves like proper contraction.

    I never suffered from BH until a couple of weeks ago. They are not supposed to hurt but some women say they do feel really uncomfortable.

    BH tend to go away and the real thing is ment to get more painful and last longer. So I've been told. xx
