  • Usually painless/unnoticed contractions are braxton hicks. They are practice contractions.
    With my expereince, they eventually do become noticable & intense~ into labor contractions.

  • I had a hard time reading what you wrote, to be honest, but I think what you're asking is if anyone has had unnoticeable contractions?

    If so, the answer is yes. Those are generally braxton hicks contractions and are just getting your body ready to deliver. I had lots of those with my first two babies, but ever since then my contractions have been quite noticeable.

    I wouldn't be concerned.
