Who did not have

Who did not have any braxton hicks but still had an ok labor?

I'm 36 1/2 weeks and I haven't had any...
I hope this doesn't mean I'll have a harder time in labor.

  • I didn't have them with either pregnancies, was in labor 12 hours with each, and had terrible pain that's why I got epidurals! :)
