Please some of you two or more time mommies reassure me that stronger, more painful Braxton Hicks are okay. No pattern to it whatsoever, but certainly uncomfortable and WAY more often than with my first. They seem to be associated with being active, though I woke up to one yesterday morn. I'm just freaking out that I'm going to have pre-term labor and not recognize it (I'm not at any risk for it, BTW).

Another thing, anyone else have pain/tenderness around their belly button? It isn't severe but there is one spot that is sore....I think maybe my belly button is going to flip outward which didn't happen with DD. If yours did, did it hurt a little?

With mine I noticed that I was feeling those BH a lot sooner than I did with the previous babies. If I walked around to much towards the end of my 2nd pregnancy I could make the contractions come on pretty hard. I knew it wasn't labor yet because I had already felt real labor with my first, but it would have ben very easy to convince me otherwise because they got prety strong at times. My midwife said that your body has a "memory" and the BH contractions will come on a little earlier with each baby.

Hope this makes you feel a little better

Special thanks to Marie "IBakeBoys08" for my beautiful siggy!!

I had a TON of BH, and also PTL. I'd say as long as they don't become regular, like more than 4 or 5 in an hour, at an evenly spaced interval; then don't worry too much. I know that's easier said than done, trust me.
