Since yesterday afternoon I've been having braxton hicks contractions more often (bout 2 every hour). They are a little painful, meaning I feel cramping with them in my lower abdomen and lower back and I feel increased pressure in my pelvic area. They arent painful enough to keep me awake or wake me up. I've been having them since I woke up this morning too. But like I said only about 2 an hour. I'm 38 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I know that it doesnt mean I will go into labor soon which is fine, baby will come soon enough when he is ready. What I was wondering is....is it normal for them to increase like this around this time of pregnancy? I never had any signs or contractions with my daughter (my water just broke one day), so I dont know how this part works exactly. I've also had some other later pregnancy symptoms this time as well. Its throwing me for a loop lol. Any advice or opinions are greatly appreciated :)Answer Question
