Is there anyone else here who has NEVER had them, not even one? I have no idea what these feel like! All I keep hearing is that since it's my second pregnancy, I should expect to be having them early and often. Apparently my uterus failed to get that memo... I can't be the only one, right?
In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.

I never had them in my first pregnancy until right at the end. With each pregnancy, I got/get them sooner and more frequently.

I never had them until this pregnancy... and this is my third. I think I started feeling them around 14 weeks, obviously they are much stronger now

This is my 2nd pregnancy and I've never had them. I asked my dr at my last appointment and she said some people feel them others don't and that's it's perfectly normal not to.

I complained to my mom about my own BH contractions, but she said that in all THREE of her pregnancies, she never had one.

So I'm sure it's totally normal to not feel any BH contractions.

My first pregnancy I had them all of twice before going into actual labor...and my actual labor was totally and completely back labor so they felt nothing alike

I've had them more frequently this pregnancy and I find them friggin annoying. Seriously uterus? Put up or shut up.

I didn't think I had any but my midwife said I probably just didn't know what to look for. After that when I was sitting still paying attention I realized that some of what I thought was the baby pushing up against me was actually BH because my belly was hard all over and not just in one spot. I can't notice them unless I look for them. I don't feel a thing. Not annoying or uncomfortable. Just barely identifiable.
