I had Braxton hicks with my daughter(2nd pregnancy) and i have them already with this pregnancy(28weeks). does anyone else have them? how often?  sometimes i find them very uncomfortable and last a good 3-5mins.

not yet ... i've had some tummy tightening moments, but that's probably ligament pain or something.  i'm only 14wks though.  i had them w/ my ds @ 30wks and was put on w/e bedrest ... think they were afraid of preterm labor.  take it easy for awhile ... maybe over the weekend if you can.  if it gets to be too much for you, i suggest calling l&d to speak with the doc on call.  good luck, hun!!  hope you feel better soon!!

 I started having them around 16 weeks.  The come every day esp. after going to the bathroom.  However, they usually never exceed more than three an hour.  They are rather uncomfortable too.  I find with every pregnancythey came earlier and harder for me.

I read at babycenter.com that as long as they are not more then 4 an hr. not regular, and not painful i should be ok. I have a 28 week check up tomorrow(mon june 6th) i going to ask about them. they are diff than last pregnancy adn i wanna make sure im ok to still work etc.

 

thanks for the feedback ladies it helped..
