braxton hicks? :O

When you experience braxton hicks does it feel as though your whole stomach tightens and you get a funny uncomfertable feeling? Not painful.

Yes your stomach will tighten and become harder and it can fell a little uncomfortable but is painless

I didn't really have them.  When I had to pee really bad I felt my stomach tighten but that was it

Yes your stomach can feel hard and round like a basketball and some pressure that is not uncomfortable. They are more intense with each pregnancy. :)
