  • Every pregnancy is different. I had them for the last three months of my second pregnancy....every day ...sometimes several times throughout the day...sometimes a few minutes apart for a couple of hours. My son was two weeks early.

  • No. Those Braxton Hicks can hang around for weeks. I hope he doesn't come too early--good luck!

    you're in the home stretch, just hang in there.

  • i have read that as long as you don't have a few per hour, it's normal and ok. i would just mention it to my doctor/midwife, but don't be too worried. lots of women have BH contrax from like 25 weeks on! i think 1 or 2 per hour is definitely normal at that point. :-)
