I haven't felt any contractions whatsoever, even after DTD... Am I the only one without BH? I am a first timer so I don't have any idea how it would feel, but no tightening, cramping, hard belly etc.

It is perfectly normal not to feel BH. I did not have any until my third pregnancy and that was after 35 weeks.

I never felt any sort of contractions or Braxton Hicks with my last pregnancy. This pregnancy, I feel crampy/have contractions every soften. I'm pretty sure it is related to how hydrated I am.

I haven't been having them either. I remember having them with both of my kids but I don't remember how far along I was, I know I was farther than this though.

I've been having them for a while now... And they are pretty uncomfortable. I'm worried to be feeling them this early and this strong.

I never get them at all. I only start having contractions in the last week or so before baby comes all the way out. Last one I didn't have any at all until 3 hours before he came out. But I am notoriously lazy.

I think that is pretty normal. I never felt any with my first.

I agree, very normal! I've had a couple this time around (very few), and didn't have any with either of my other pregnancies.

I'm getting lots of Braxton hicks several times a day, sometimes it almost takes my breath away it's so tight. And lately I've been having like period cramping, which I never had with dd I hope it's nothing to worry about, no bleeding or spotting or anything with it though.

I'm pretty sure I had a few last night and they are very very very uncomfortable. I also had to pee at least 5 times in 20 minutes

I didn't have BH the first time around. In fact, I didn't have any at all until I was induced!!

None so far this pregnancy.

Consider yourself lucky. I had them with my DD and I started having them very early with this one. They've slowed down some, but I still get some at least once a day.

Maybe your uterus is broken J/k. Next time you dtd instead of waiting to feel a bh, feel for it. Feel for your uterus (right around your bellybutton) and push to see if it's tightened up. Before a bh it's kinda hard to tell what's uterus and what's belly. But durring a BH your uterus is very prominet. I can feel the outline of my entire uterus.
Oh.. and make sure when your feeling for this you've had the big "O" not just sex. O's make your body produce oxytocin which is what give you the contractions.

I've never felt any sort of contracts with any of my pregnancies. Maybe I'm broken too....lol.
