  • A friend of mine is pregnant as we speak due the 6th and has never had any. The doctor did not seem worried he said every woman and baby and pregnancy is different.

  • I've had two babies, vaginally, and the only contractions I ever felt were in transitional labor with Baby #2. No BH ever.

  • not worried just wondering if it's normal because I just thought that was the way your body prepares to have a baby:) thanks for your responses!!

  • your body prepares in other ways. you don't have to feel your body getting ready. :) i NEVER felt any contrax ever with my son until the night before he was born at 41 weeks. i'm hoping to have the same experience with this baby (15 weeks right now) but i know i might have BH for several weeks or not at all :) i was really glad not to have them because i think it would always make me wonder if i was about to go into labor. gl!

  • Many women don't feel their BH contractions.

  • i never did tell if i had any w/ the first and he came on his own. i wouldn't worry about it. baby will come when baby is ready.
