Hey Ladies, Just wondering if anyone could shed some light on this for me. I was doing the dishes last night and I got this really wierd cramping sensation in my abdomen - kindof like an intense squeezing / pulling feeling (hard to explain) and when it was at its worst it was kinda hard to breathe (could still breath obviously but just felt tight??) Anyway I walked around for a while then layed on the couch and it stopped - could that be braxton hicks - I am not really worried its anything bad cause I feel fine other wise and bub is moving about as normal - any advise would be appreciated. I have a app with midwife on 25th and will ask her too, but just thought someone here could help.... Thanks for any response!!! X

yeah it definitely sounds like bh contractions to me..... funny that it happened to you when you were doing dishes cuz the first time they hit me was when i was doing dishes too. if it happens again you probably should just grab a bottle of water and lay down on your left side for a bit. this should help them subside...... :o)

Thanks heaps for responding - well I am only 27 weeks so I wasnt sure - but I think it is different for everyone! Disko love i will definately try that next time - must admit i am a bit worried - if thats the "practise" ones I really am not looking forward to the real ones haha. Maybe the problem is the dishes and all pregnant women should NOT do them just in case haha!!!! I might try that one....
