Can Braxton hicks be slightly painful?
Most people say Braxton hicks are not painful.
I find they are uncomfortable and can be painful, what about you?

For me they're not painful but do sometimes make me breathless enough that I need to sit down & if I've been having a lot of them then I'll start to get a bit achy. I wouldn't rely on my perception of pain when it comes to contractions of any kind though. I'm one of those annoying women who didn't find labour painful! blush

Yes. Mine are starting to get very uncomfortable, and catch my breath.
Had one last week that went all round my lower back, and that hurt a bit, not as much as contractions, but enough to go "ooosh"
