BH Contractions

Anyone else get tons of braxton hicks contractions? Sometimes I have several an hour or day. I know they aren't the real deal but stool hate them and worry.



My midwife says she trusts my judgment to know if I should be checked out.

 I get them here and there but definitely not every day.

I don't even know what they feel like, so I have no clue.

I've been having them like crazy. A few have actually been painfull so I'm drinking water like crazy and taking lots of breaks from my yard work.

Your first baby you may not notice so much. They feel like a tightening in your uterus and mine often give me pressure in my bladder, bum, and/or back. I feel one as we speak. I figured sleep and water would have helped but no such luck. May be making an appearance at my midwives today.

In a manner of speaking, this is my 4th. First carried nearly full term. Two after that, I lost.

I only feel pressure on my bladder when he moves around, as far as I know.
