So I'm pregnant with my 2nd never did I experience Braxton hicks til Thursday early early morning after going to the bathroom. They are stronger but come randomly or when I move. yesterday they weren't so bad etc but later at night they got a bit worse to were I feel like I'm dying. I did a few different things to help it calm down a few worked but not so much. There getting unbearable but I'm not sure if it's Braxton hicks cuz it's under my lower abdomen but the pain aren't constant and they are more like cramps and my baby does move which makes me more uncomfortable and going to the bathroom.
Girls, Braxton hicks?

What exactly is yr question?
I assume you're a first-time mom. If so, congratulations! <3
(Once you've experienced actual labor, trust me, you'll know the difference ahah)
The telltale signs of B-H contractions include...
... yr belly will be soft one minute, and then weirdly hard/firm the next minute -- sometimes even with a distorted shape (less round, more... pointed? Don't know exactly what to call it)
... the contractions are *UNPREDICTABLE*... and DON0

This would be a better question to ask on like a pregnancy forum or to call the hospital with since so few of us are mothers or have experienced pregnancy.0
wait how far along are you? I've been having them since 16 weeks I'm 23 weeks now and feel them a bit more. honestly they're normal unless your water breaks, you're having pains to where you can't stand or walk through, you see blood with mucuc or just blood in general warrants the ER. I gave birth a hour after my SHOW. I almost birthed in the car. my contractions bwere very painful i was 40+1 day and they never got closer together even tho I was in so much pain they're suppose to be every 5 mins and getting closer. my whole labor they were 10,7,5 mins apart. they kept bouncing around finally after my show they picked up so much worse I couldn't breath through them I decided to go in.. I thought I'd be around 5cm dialted I was actually 9 and ready to push. they broke my water and one push my baby was here. that was my third. I'm on my forth now. follow your pain levels!!! I mean it has to be bad pains. that feel like pressure, cramping and stabbing. you won't be able to do anything while you're having one if its real labor.0
