    Question Braxton Hicks

    I believe I had some last night.. haven't since then.. anyone else? I mean, how early can they start? I don't remember experiencing them with Noah. But it's been 5 years LOL

    I've def been having a lot of them for a while now! It's tightening, almost painful but def not like real labor. Just got back from the doctor who had me on a monitor for 20 min and checked me and said there is no change in my cervix and nothing doing to indicate real labor/contrax.
    But they are very uncomfortable and do stop me in my tracks. Just another fun thing to deal with for the next few weeks

    I believe my weekly emails started mentioning them popping up as early as 28 weeks-ish. So it's completely possible to have had them at your gestational age!

    SUPPOPEDLY - They are just a tightening of the tummy / ab region.. just like a regular contraction.. but you don't feel the pressure / pain of it because it's not a laboring-type contraction.. just a practice run.

    BUT!!! - I would disagree with this because I feel BH contractions.. they make my back spasm and I was all back labor with DD so it's been uncomfy when they happen.

    They have been getting much stronger for me the past 3-4 days.. actually making me jerk out of the position I'm in because it's a little on the uncomfy side.

    YAY for progress!

    The reason I ask is because I've been having some uncomfortable times when I don't think baby is really moving around and doing it. It felt like tightening as if baby was stretching, but baby wasn't stretching. When I touch my belly it doesn't feel super hard like I'd expect with a contraction.

    I didn't have any contractions that I knew of with DD so this is all new to me. The midwife keeps saying my body 'remembers' but I don't really get how it can. I didn't labour with DD! Anyways....

    Ok, well maybe that's what I was feeling then. That's good though, I want to have a vaginal birth this time so it would be nice if things were somewhat normal. :P

    I haven't experienced any more since last night but I see they are very irregular which is a good thing bc that's how they should be!
