I havn't had any Braxton Hicks Contractions.

Im 36 weeks and havn't had any Braxton Hicks Contractions. This is my second pregnancy, and with my first I remember getting them sooner, and vary often.
I've just read that most people start getting Barxton Hicks Contractions after the 20th week, and that if its your second time around you can get them sooner and even stronger then before. I have appointments every week, and everythings good. I have mentioned this to my doctor. She just ask's me every week if I've gotten any yett. -but I haven't.
Im a little worried. I dont want my baby to stay in way past her due date because I haven't even had practice labour. Is this normal? Can you go a whole pregnancy without any Braxton Hiicks?

  • They may be so slight you can't feel them. I really felt them with my first and third, with my second I didn't feel anything until the week before I delivered. Don't worry, there is no "one way" to be pregnant, you know? :)

  • Yes you can go with out feeling them. Or they are slight you don't even notice them. Every pregnancy is different.
