How many of us are experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions? Are you having them often or sporadically? When do you notice them?


I feel like I've had a lot today :/ They usually are sporadic, but today it seemed like they were all day long. I notice them more when I am doing a lot and standing on my feet. I don't think the high heat here helps any either. Also, I think I need to drink more water too

Same with me some days I feel like I get more than usual it's mostly in the evening after I've been working all day and it's super hot.

I need to drink more too.

Mine are sporadic. I also get them more if I do a lot. I have also felt them several times on nighttime bathroom runs.

I get them almost daily towards the end of the day and especially if I don't drink enough! Such a new experience for me compared to my last two pregnancies!

I get about 5 an hour constantly throughout the day, they drive me nuts because they cause me to just feel weird, I have a sudden urge to pee and nothing can be on my stomach when they happen because then it hurts. I never had them this much and this early with my 1st.

Mine have been really sporadic. It's almost always brought on by me being on my feet too much. The other night Akadia's beach ball blew away because we forgot to put it up and I was running through the field in the dark chasing it with a flashlight. Finally caught up to it next to a bush that had something living in there hissing at me. Got the ball and ran (pretty sure it was a skunk). Got lots of BH's after that. If I'm just hanging out in the house though and not chasing beach balls in the dark, I don't really have problems with them.

I only seem to get them right now when I'm stressed, like yesterday when the kids were screaming all day and trying to kill each other. I had so many I had to go lay down.

I've been having them but didn't know that's what they were until the other night.. They're not really painful, just weird. Lol but they're usually sporadic or more frequent to the evening hours if I was on my feet all day.

I'm not sure if what I'm feeling is BH or not but its a slight tightening in my lower abdomen and only when I've overdone some activity. Though it kind of freaks me out. Is it normal to have them this early? :/

I get them throughout the day, mainly when first getting up or finally sitting again. I know I get them while I'm walking or working or whatever, but I notice them more when I'm still. I've only taken my procardia to stop them a few times so far, and I think that is great.

And Hannah, totally normal to get them this early. It's just your uterus getting some practice in.

So far I don't think I have had any yet- not sure if that is a good sign or not?

Yep I've gotten them almost daily for quite some time. But I usually only have 1-5 per day and the higher end is when I'm stressed or not drinking enough.
