I think I might have had one last night? Which would be the first time in either pregnancy that I noticed feeling anything contraction like besides while I was trying to be induced in the hospital when it was obvious. I've never had a BH contraction to my knowledge either. I dont' think EVERYONE has contractions early.

I think it's completely normal to not have contractions at this point...everyone is different, though. I wouldn't worry too much...it isn't really an indication of how early or late you'll go into labor. Some ladies have been contracting forever with no progress, and others have no contractions, and then BAM go into labor.

With my first I never felt any contractions....until the day I was induced. Even then, when they hooked the monitor up I was having some contractions but didn't even notice it. Now once they started pitocin, oh heck yeah I felt them. Just never felt them prior to actual labor.

My second was a different story, I had timeable contractions a solid week before before my water broke. Those contractions were quite painful too.

So, I guess my ramble of a reply is that being your first you may not feel any noticable contractions until labor starts. It sounds like a bummer, but really it's annoying to have so many contractions before labor.

With my first I didn't have any contractions by now either. I had a few BH contractions the week or so I went into labor but the nice thing was that when I woke up to a contraction one morning (at 42 weeks) I knew that I was in labor. I just knew.

My good friend was also due around me and she had strong contractions for weeks! She was always sure that they would lead to something and was often disappointed. She also went into labor at 42 weeks so I don't think the contractions had anything to do with how soon we were about to go into labor.

No, I'll be 36 weeks tomorrow & I haven't had any. I didn't have any with my first pregnancy either, until the Pitocin was started.

Even when my water ruptured I had no pain whatsoever. Never had any BH's either. When they started the Pitocin, that all changed *ugh*

I never felt a contraction with my first until I went into labor at 41 weeks 3 days. With my second, I did feel braxton hicks contractions about a week before (so starting at 40 weeks), and this time I have felt braxton hicks contractions for weeks.

I'd be happy with no contractions! I've been battling them since 25w. Both BH and contractions are annoying. Enjoy not having them so far in this pregnancy

Mine have settled down over the past 2 weeks after having tons of painful ones and BH everyday since 22 weeks. Must be the calm before the storm. Ive only been having 2-3 a day lately with a bunch of BH thrown in but those don't hurt.

No contractions here. Didn't have them with DS either until a few hours after my water broke. It doesn't mean you're last in line. Baby might surprise you.

I was having a lot of BH but lately I haven't been getting as many. I thought that they would keep increasing in number as I got closer but that's not been the case.

Me! I think I had a couple very mild Braxton hicks contractions but other than that I haven't had any that I know of anyways.

I haven't had any contractions, and I know what they feel like! With my 1st, even after being induced, I described them as more of an annoyance, and my mom had to tell me that they were contractions. Mind you, those were only the early contractions, but still. With my 2nd and 3rd, I didn't have any until my water broke. With my 4th, I was also induced so none until they started the induction. My 4th was the only one I had any Braxton Hicks contractions with. Don't worry - it doesn't necessarily mean anything!
