  • No it doesnt matter if you feel them or not. I didnt feel any BH with my first and it was all good. I actually was dialated to 3cm for a week before I actually went into labor and I was so shocked when the dr told me I had dialated because I hadnt had any BH or any sign that I was working towards labor. Just count yourself lucky because now I am pregnant with my second and I feel them and I think they are very uncomfortable.

  • If you are anything like me then no. My body didn't have a clue how to get my children out. So I was induced both times. Everything was fine and planned. Don't worry your baby will come out when she is ready and before you pop.

  • Some women start getting BH in the second trimester (like me!) and some never get them so don't worry about that one bit. Your body is working hard even if you can't feel it. Don't stress, just take it easy. All things come in their own time. My body was signaling labor for two weeks before my due date and my son didn't come until two weeks AFTER my due date and even then it was through induction. Another friend of mine had no signals and then gave birth to her son two weeks early. Labor came on for her all of a sudden and her son was born in 6 hours flat!

    We're all different. Just trust your body and your baby to do their jobs :)
