Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

Braxton Hicks Contractions?

4 answers
I am 27 weeks far and sometimes my stomach get's extremely tight/hard that its a bit uncomfortable. It usually goes away after a few mins and it doesn't happen all the time. I don't know if that is a braxton hicks contraction preparing my body for birth. I've read some women feel them throughout their pregnancy while other's don't until the big day. Just wanted to get your opinion and see what others feel when they are getting such contraction.

It definitely sounds like braxton hicks to me. You should expect them cause you are fixing to start your third trimester. Good luck.
Thank you. At least now I know.

Yup definitly braxton and you can start feeling them as early as six weeks pregnant.
