Did you have Braxton Hicks contractions?

Okay ladies, this is what is going on! I'm almost 39 weeks pregnant. My labor starts and then freaking stops. I've been playing this game since I hit 37 weeks. My Midwife said to call her when my water breaks and/or my contractions are five minutes apart. I'm dilating but for some reason not going into ACTIVE labor! SO, all this just to ask if your Braxton Hicks contractions lasted even if you moved around, drank plenty of fluid, relaxed, etc? Oh, and were they painful? Mine seem to be getting stronger but they still aren't regular!

  • This could go on for quite sometime. A friend of mine was in the exact same situation and kept thinking it would be "any time" at like 37 wks....Well she went over 41! So try not to get too impatient! Gl mama!
