How much did you have Braxton Hicks contractions?

I'm about 33 1/2 weeks and have had maybe 4-5 BH total since maybe week 30. Just wondering if anyone noticed a lot more and had a somewhat earlier delivery? Of maybe some people had hardly any BH? Just curious.

  • I had them alot around that time and still managed to go over 3 days.. DD born 40 weeks 3 days. Exciting times.. I dont think they necessarily mean you will be early.. your bodies just getting ready for the big day.. good luck :)

  • I had them from 29 weeks up and they got more frequent and strong the further along I was.

  • First pregnancy: not at all.

    Second pregnancy: from the 2nd month on.

  • I started feeling them around 4 or 5 months, and then had them right up until labor started. I actually thought that my labor was BH contractions for the first couple of days.

  • I didn't get my braxton hicks till the last month with my first pregnancy and with my second I noticed them a lil earlier!!

  • I had them with my second but I was also dehydrated alot so it tends to bring on contractions. With my baby I didnt have them, and I cant remember then with my first.

  • I've been having them since... oh probably 34 or 35 weeks... they've been getting stronger and more frequent (I'll be 39 weeks on thursday)
