I thought it felt like a cramp (not painful) that gradually went up my belly and than released.  It is a really weird feeling, but it should not hurt.  It can be uncomfortable.

Your stomach gets hard and then releases after a minute or so... it can kinda be uncomforable but it doesn't hurt.

because i have been havin these weird cramps it is like a cramp but then a burning sensation that kinda feels like it goes out my vagina from my stomche ..it only happens about 4 or 5 times a day and last for maybe 5 secounds  so i was just wondering if those might be braxton hicks..

If you are concerned I would contact your OB....it sounds like Braxton Hicks, but follow your gut feeling.  It never hurts to be safe.

Well they feel to me like i am sucking in the fat on my stomach really hard. Except i am not, my body is doing it all by itself. My stomach still hurts today, i had a bunch of them all at once last night. I am assured it is normal. They weren't painful, just weird. I did not have this with my first. Only now with my little girl.
