  • when you get the contarctions 3-4 minutes apart go to the labor & delivery...because your baby is on the way also you need to keep track of how often your baby moves and if it doesnt move at all you need to go to the hospital because there may be someting wrong with the baby other than that its normal for the baby to not move as much as before because it is bigger and doesnt have a lot of room as before.....

  • i have been having braxton hicks as well and im 32 weeks my doctor says its normal and just change your postion..and the reason you may not be feeling your baby move is because they say as you he grows he still moves but he is growing so its hard for him in that little area..this is my 1st pregnancy so i had to ask my doctor all this as well and im just telling you what he told me..i wish you luck with your baby..congrats

  • I've been having braxton hicks since my 4th month! It usually starts in the 5th for me but a a few weeks earlier this pregnancy. It does get stronger the farther along you are, but if they are getting closer together, and not stopping when you change positions then call your doctor. Better safe then sorry I always say!! Also I've read on here, which I didn't know before, that you should drink alot of water if you're having strong BH, could be caused if you're not getting enough water! Good Luck!
