  • Everyone gets BH. It's your body's way of practicing for labor. However, not everyone feels them. Your BH are just probably mild enough that you don't notice. They may feel like your baby is just stretching out.

  • Maybe you are having them and not feeling-realizing it.
    Your body will do whatever it needs to do to prepare & practice. Most likely, you will start having them eventually.

    Good luck! :-)

  • I didnt feel any at all with my first, so when I started having contractions at 36 1/2 wks I thought they WERE Bh but surprise!! It was the real thing :) With my 2nd I felt them alot in the last month, and with my 3rd I felt them ALOT more!! Every pregnancy is so different, but its all normal!
