I've had them here and there, mostly when I'm overdoing it and not hydrating. I maybe get a dozen total throughout the day at most. I was getting them nonstop with my first from about 28 weeks so I'm enjoying how infrequent they are this time!

I have them often, especially when not well hydrated. I don't really feel them, have to notice the tightening or I miss them completely.

I have been getting them mostly at night, i think because im tired from working all day and over doing it (even though i dont do much at work :rolleyes:) I probably get between 10-15 on a normal night home, i also drink more when im at home so when my bladder fills up i notice them more......

I have been keeping track (love my phone apps) and right now they are 15 min apart.

I seem to have them most in the afternoon and evening. I have no idea how many I have but it is a lot.

Tons of them every day...but no regular pattern, etc..
For sure every time I get up from sitting down. But often just when I'm sitting there too.
Most don't bother me and I just notice the tightening. But I do get the ones that make me stop.

I have been having them pretty regularly. I have the painless ones a few times a day, usually when I am exerting myself (carrying dd, unloading groceries, standing a long time etc).
I have been having some that hurt occasionally as well, a couple times a week. I've noticed that they seem to happen when I am stressed... Which I have been a lot in the last few weeks. Ow!

Same here! I asked my midwife about whether she thought what I was feeling were BHs or baby shifting positions and she said it was probably the baby.
