Braxton Hicks CRUEL TRICKS

Now on week 31 and dear unwanted fake friend Braxton Hicks has arrived to confuse me yet another pregnancy. They say it is not painful...NOPE mine hurt. Its a tightening that is above the level of uncomfortable and my pain threshold is pretty good. Cruel evil manipulative Braxton also comes regularly, a rhythmic 5 minute interval just to increase my stress levels at the idea of a premmie baby. I sleep it off eventually and wake up back to normal till his next nightly visit. Any other ladies being scammed by Braxton Bloody Hicks???
