nope.. i never got them before. its kind of nice cause when i start having contractions i know im in labor..... oh actually i cant say that come to think of it, once during my sec. preg. while on vaca. i had contractions for a few hours... but i was 6 months preggers then. take it easy, put your feet up.
I have been having them everyday for about a week now, they don't hurt me or anything I can just tell that I am having them by the tightening feeling, plus my uterus is already just under my bellybutton so I think it's really noticable now.
No, I'm not having any BH.. Honestly, I don't know what those feel like or "natural" labor signs.. I was induced at 39 weeks with Adriana and I had no labor contractions until they started the Pitocin.. I have a feeling this pregnancy will be the same way.. Which I don't mind..
have had a few already. lots of things can cause them- too much activity, constipation, dehydration.
If you feel BH my suggestion would be to sit and drink some water, always helped me (went into preterm labor with Holden at 26 weeks and had PAINFUL braxton hicks from then on)
If you aren't sure what they feel like- imagine your uterus balling up into a fist and protruding from your stomach. That's a braxton hicks contraction. Some are painful, just not horribly, and they are ALWAYS uncomfortable.
I've seen many other DDCs mistake BH as baby movement.
