First Braxton Hicks feelings, what to expect?

A quarter of my bump just went rock hard, not painful.

Do Braxton Hicks effect the entire bump all at once? Do they start in one place and then rAdiate over the rest of the bump? I'm 25 weeks today, I'm not sure what or when to expect them

What I have had that I think is BHs has involved the whole lot going very tense. After a variety of different stimuli, including weeing at one point. I'm 29w with #1 so no idea if this is the norm!

Do you find them unnerving or does it feel OK when you experience them?

Umm, it is a bit odd I suppose. I do a lot of running, which currently involves a lot of weeing, and the combo of having done a wee and getting up from a squatting position seems to be a double trigger, and that can feel quite strange. Also the fact it makes my belly change shape - I am fairly slim so I think this is quite noticeable. What's more unnerving is the fact that now I can feel him kicking under my ribs if I'm at all scrunched up!

Yes I think that is what it is... not really painful... just rock hard and can make it uncomfortable to do much like walking around...
