Can anyone tell me the difference? Does one last longer? Is one brought on by activity? Is the location different?

Me too!! Sometimes when I walk or stand up I start feeling a tightening. I a__sume it's just ligaments stretching. I would love to hear a good description of the difference as well!! (30 weeks)

if you feel your entire stomach area tightening up, then chances are it's b.h...cramps in the lower region...the pelvis area, chances are it's ligaments stretching. braxton hicks are just a tightening of the belly area, and sometimes they hurt. not everyone gets them though.

I have been feeling both. It really hurts and plus the pressure in the v____a and back.

For me, braxton hicks feel kind of like menstrual cramps but as i get further along, then i can feel my belly tightening, although painlessly. Ligament stretching is a much sharper, sudden pain, usually when I move suddenly or quickly. Hope that helps.

b.h. is when your lower belly gets really hard. I told my doc i usually feel like my bladder is full, she said yup thats them.
