  • I have experienced braxton hicks since week 13 and I was very worried that something was wrong. I am now 33 wks and the braxton hicks havent slowed down yet my doctor checked me at my last appointment to make sure I wasnt dialating...and I wasnt. But I read that its just your body preparing for giving birth. Anywhoo congrats you have 10 more weeks to go!! :P

  • I am in the same boat and Im 29 weeks. If you want to make sure that its only BH not a preterm labour drink some more water and lie down on your left side. Your uterus should calm down.
    Im pretty nervous myself and cant wait till my next visit - for sure I will talk about it to my Dr and probably ask to get checked - but that cause I have history of PROM and having preemie baby.
    Good luck and keep cooking this LO - hopefully we both can go good few more weeks :)
