How do Braxton-Hicks contractions feel?
Braxton-Hicks contractions are not typically painful as true labor
contractions may be. Some women describe them as a tightening sensation across
the lower abdomen. They may feel similar to menstrual cramps in some women. The
abdomen may become firm to the touch. They do not occur at regular intervals.
