For pregnant Ladies: Are you have braxton hicks contractions? Do you have a hard time deciding if they are real contractions or braxton hicks?

For Mommies: Did you have Braxton Hicks Contractions during your pregnancy? Did you have a hard time deciding whether they were real or not?

With Jackson I did not have any braxton hicks contractions so when I started having them around 20 weeks with Jacob I freaked out because I wasn't sure if they were real or not. My dr helped me to try to understand the difference. Braxton Hicks did not hurt as much as the real things for me.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I had BH contrax most of my pregnancy. Around 30 weeks, since it was my first, they scared me a lot because I didn't know if they were real or not...now I know what real ones feel like.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I started feeling braxton hicks about 3 weeks before Peter was born. Last time I staeted regular (every 4 minutes) BH at about 24ish weeks. Lol it was exhausting.

With my first, I only felt just the tightening sensation, never anything painful as far as BH. With Kody here, I get ones that I can feel and are uncomfortable, have been getting them for a long time. Sometimes it is hard to tell whether they're the real deal or not.

I've been getting them randomly over the last 2 months. I never went into labor with Megan so idk what a "real" contraction feels like.

I had them starting at about 5 months with Reagan and about 6 months with Addy. I could usually tell they were not real, because they were completely in the front, they were at times uncomfortable, but they were always annoying...lol!
