anyone else having daily braxton hicks contractions? this has been going on for over a week now. should i be concerned? they are not painful...
If they dont hurt, they arent "timeable", and you arent feeling extra pressure with them, then they shouldnt be anything to worry about. I know what I am having arent just BH's because of the pain in my back, around my ribs, and down below.... also, they have been as close together as 12 min. Try drinking more water, and getting your feet up when you feel them (if you can). If they get worse, or you start having other syptoms, I would def. go in. Either way, def. mention it to your doc at your next appt, just to see what they say
I'm getting them, too. Usually at least a couple a day. Last week, I had at least 5 in one hour, but laying down, drinking some water, and getting some rest helped them ease up. But I'm definitely taking notice of these more and more. My body is getting in a lot of practice early with this one!!

I started getting them a couple months ago which seemed very early to me, but I my OB said they are normal. She said many women who are BTDT moms feel them more in their subsequent pregnancies than they did in their 1st. I can't remember ever feeling them in my 1st. I never knew what people were talking about when they talked about a BH. I always wondered why I didn't have them. I am not really fond of them now. They are uncomfortable. Not painful, but just annoying.
Really dumb question here... WHAT DO THEY FEEL LIKE? lol

yeah, they don't hurt but are annoying. i will talk to my midwife about them. everything makes me a bit paranoid because i had a complication during my first pregnancy, my water broke at 28 weeks. so...i worry about the braxton hicks even though they are normal.
