Painful Braxton Hicks?

Hi all!

32 weeks and for the past 2 weeks I've had what I think are BH daily however, all I keep reading is that "you should be able to feel them and they may be uncomfortable but not painful".

What I've been experiencing is a, not unbearable but definitely painful menstrual like pain that makes me take notice in my abdomen and back. It also feels like I really need to poop but I've tried multiple times whilst experiencing this and can't! What makes me think it is BH is that, although I can't really feel my uterus tightening, my tummy is rock solid to the touch.

Has anyone else experienced painful BH or is this just some other kind of pregnancy pain that we are blessed with?! smile
