  • i NEVER felt any BH contractions AT ALL during my pregnancy.

    when i was 40w6days, i was crampy all night, and then had my son the next day. i don't call that crampiness BH because i consider it early labor.

    some women have BH a lot and some don't have any contrax whatsoever until the day their baby is born :)

  • No, you don't have to but they might happen during the last week or so. I remember having a few just before the last week and right before actual labor started.

  • I had none with my first and HORRIBLE ones with my daughter so I guess it can go either way.
