  • Yes.. They are normal. I am almost 18 weeks with my third child, and it depends on the position of my baby.

  • I dont think they are as much BH as the position of the baby and your position as well at 18 weeks. I'm 15 weeks and I have the same thing with my pregnancy. I think they mean if you feel it go from soft to hard and vise versa. That isn't the case with me and from the sounds of it, it doesn't like like it is doing that for you either. It's more for a time it feels softer or harder than it did earlier in the day, not necessarily a minute to two again, like BH would be.
