i've been getting LOADS of BH's for the last week and am still getting them and am wondering if real contractions feel the same except with pain?? as in when i get a BH my bump goes ROCK hard and a funny shape and is VERY uncomfortable but no pain - so will a contraction be the same PLUS pain?

yes, it's the same plus pain, well it was for me! I think labour pains are different for everyone though.

mmm kind of but not really. to be honest when I had contraction felt the pain more than actually noticing tummy going hard.
