Gas pains do not cause your stomach to ball up and get hard. Those are BH contractions. If they become regular or strong, or are accompanied by any other symptoms such as spotting, mucus, or back pain, see your doctor.
That's what I thought too but I couldn't understand why when I usually get them they don't hurt and sometimes they hurt really bad.
I don't now why that is, but I get tis too. My BH only hurt in the middle of the nightm especially if I have to go pee. I am 32.5 weeks.
yes, i find when i have a bh, i have to then pee. must put pressure on the bladder. i am 29 weeks and probaby get them 5-7 times per day. when i get them more frequently, i drink more water and rest and they seem to subside.
