  • With my last one I had Braxton Hicks a lot. Just keep track of them when you have then. If it seems like they are constant then start to time them if they get 3-5 minutes apart go to L&D.

  • i had menstrual like cramps at 22 weeks that was actually causing my uterus to bulge and contract. then, at 30 weeks i had "false labor" contractions that were 5 minutes apart for an hour, then 3 minutes apart for another 30 minutes...then, it went away and came back hours later. it's unusual...because those were real contractions, I was just fortunate that it didn't continue like it did...otherwise i would have had a baby at 30 weeks. I'll be 38 weeks on Sunday...and I'm feeling lots of pains all the time...and I'm hoping labor is coming soon!

  • I have been having Braxton Hicks now since 7 months. Doc says its normal. I am 38 weeks now. They are getting more regular but nothing to go to the hospital for. I get about 4-6 an hour. Before it was here and there.
