Is it normal to not have BH??

I had 0 BH contractions with DS....that I felt anyway. And so far with this pg I've felt 0 BH contractions. I've a few period like cramps here and there but nothing where I felt my uterus tightening or anything. Just wondering if there is anyone else that hasn't had BH contactions either or if I'm a fluke!

I never had any with my first pregnancy. I have had some this time around though. I think it's completely normal.

I think it's totally normal! I bet you are having them though and just not noticing. Smile

I didn't have them with dd. This time around I wish I didn't, I get them constantly.

haha I've been told this time and last with DD that I have an 'irritable uterus'....makes me want to show them what irritable really looks like!! Smile

I am not sure if I am getting them. There are times that my tummy feels tight but I am not sure if it is BH or her stretching. Smile

I don't think I had any with my first. And this time I was having them, but I can't tell if they're still happening or not...like Becca said - you might not be noticing them.

I didnt have any (or very few) with DS.

This time its still very few, seems more like a cramp than an actual BH most of the time.
