  • not really, not most of the time....thinking of the uterus as a muscle, think of Braxton Hicks as "exercise", getting ready for the hard work....

  • I have been feeling them since I was 20 something weeks so no it doesn't mean anything. I'm now almost 37 weeks and feel them aloooot more. I wish they would stop cause they are annoying!

  • Im 33 weeks and I JUST started getting them accompanied by awful Vaginal pains. My Mom said with me she got them two weeks before she had me so I was just curious. Thanks Ladies
