    Debbie has them, we think. Her stomach gets very firm and she can feel it tensing but they're not painful for her.

    From what I've read, they shouldn't be particularly painful.

    What kind of pain is it? Does it radiate, or is it more like a stabbing pain?

    Yeah I started getting them about two weeks ago. They're not painful but a bit uncomfortable, feels like i'm doing a sit up. My tummy goes all rigid and my muscles ache.

    No it's nothing like a stabbing pain and usually in the same place, it's not mega painful, kind of like a very mild contraction :shock:

    Can't remember having them with paris mind that was nearly 8 years ago :shock:

    Maybe you're more sensitive to them as it's your second?

    I posted this in third tri but anyway. I told my modwife last week that I felt like I was having BH. She said not likely, it was too early. This is my third pregnancy and they are BH! My stomach goes hard like I'm tensing my stomach muscles but they're not painful.

    They do get uncomfortable later on but for now it's just your uterus practising contractions!
