  • There really is no "average"

  • As much as your body has them. It can vary from day to day based on fluid intake, exercise, stress and everything else. I had them a few hours throughout the day but they would last maybe 30 minutes and never increase in pain, they would come and go all day though and maybe a total of 3 hours a day they were noticeable at one time or another.

  • There really is no average. Braxton Hicks just come and go. They tend to come more often when you're being active as opposed to relaxing. Most of the time they're just annoying and uncomfortable.
