  • Not everyone gets them. Don't feel like you're not "on-schedule" if you never have them.

  • My Braxton Hicks started around 7 months. Of course, I had no idea that they were Braxton Hicks until I was doing a NST at the doctors office and the nurse came over and asked how long I had been having contractions for. Mine didn't hurt, it just felt like a "hardening" in one area of my belly. Apparently, Braxton Hicks don't usually "do" anything but mine began making me dilate so I was put on bedrest from there on out.
