Contractions...Need advice...PLEASE

Ok I'm 38 weeks. I had my daughter right at a year ago so I remember very clearly what they are like, but with this pregnancy I've not had as many brax hicks contractions and the past few days I have had a few big ones but is it possible that because I had my daughter so recently that I could be having contractions just not feeling them? Does that make sense? It just doesn't seem like it's the same....

  • that probably isnt the reason. if you thin you are having contractions go in and dont just say oh im hving them but cant feel them.

  • Drink some water and lay down on your left side, if they stop, they are just BH. If they continue, call your OB, or just go in.
