don;t worry biglips, sounds like braxton hicks , i.e practice contractions.. normal part of later pregnancy

I've been having this (am 36 weeks) but without the tightness, so I thought it couldn't be BH. Thanks lulumama for the info!
Anyone know why it only happens at night and wakes you up, but never in the day? Well strange

make sure you are well hydrated as if you aren;t it can lead to more BH

if you are worried, or it is painful, or the tightness does not go away,then give your MW a call
