I've been having a lot of BH contractions and this morning when I woke up I had a handful of SUPER painful ones! Yikes. I hope that doesn't become a regular occurrence. I can't remember too well with DS, I know I had BH but I don't remember them being painful really.

How about everyone else? Are you having a lot of BH?

I've been having contractions that I wouldn't call Braxton hicks but they are too far apart to do anything about (maybe one every 6-12 hours).
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!

I was just talking to my sister about this (she's due 2 weeks after me)
I haven't had any Braxton hicks so far. Is that weird? With my first I felt none. Felt lots with my second and I'm pretty sure it was at this stage. They say they get stronger with each pregnancy but I haven't felt any yet.

Hope yours subside!!

I'm having a lot of them too, I ended up asking my doctor about them on Tuesday because they seem to be much more frequent, earlier, and more uncomfortable than the ones I had with Chase. She told me to drink a lot of water and if I had 6+ in an hour to call their on call or go to L&D to be checked. She offered a cervical check Tues to see if I was dilated any but I opted out of that (surprise crotch checks are no fun haha).

They hit me so strongly that I have a hard time even trying to walk- not in pain but just SO tight and uncomfortable!

*Thank you to
*Kiliki* for my beautiful signature!*

I'm having them on and off. Some of mine are painful too which is confusing because they say BH "don't hurt". Maybe they are just sporadic real contractions? I know with my other kids the dr was always surprised at how dilated I was pretty early. I was like 4 cm dilated at 35 weeks and didn't deliver until 39 weeks.

Thanks *Kiliki* for my lovely siggy!!

I haven't had any... I don't really remember having them with DD either. I also drink a **** ton of water so I wonder if that's why.

I'm the same with Fins, I haven't had any yet either and drink a LOT of water but I'm a FTM and I know a few you said it's pretty normal not to feel them with your first baby.

I'm sorry they're so painful for you! I have zero experience but maybe a nice bath would help? *hugs*

I've been having quite a few BH, about 5-6 a day, more on busy/stressful days. I haven't had any painful ones, though. I've heard some women do have painful BH, though. I hope they subside for you!
