If baby is moving as normal, it doesn't sound like anything to worry about. Perhaps baby has shifted position slightly? Or maybe this is the calm before the storm, and you're about to go into labour? Fingers crossed!
That's interesting. I am 34 weeks and have BH pretty much constantly and some are intense. I'll watch out for them stopping near the end. Let us know if they come back or turn into real labour! All the best for the birth
BH didn't come back until late Tuesday evening, when they were different to before (more painful than 'heavy'). By doctor's app on the Wednesday I was 2cm (so they were probably early contractions rather than BHs), and I went into 'proper' labour late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning. DS was born on Thursday afternoon
So I think it was the calm before the storm for me...
This sounds interesting for me. I had noticed my bh had stopped or certainly got less the beginning of this week. All my 'bh' now seem painfull and coupled with mild back ache. Only having a couple a day but sounds promising for me. I'm 37w today this is second dc next mw app is friday. Dc1 was 10days overdue .
Congratulations! I am on first pg and didn't realise until I read your description of BH that it what I've been getting. Especially when walking, it feels very tense and almost like I've a stitch and have to stop walkiing for a minute until it goes! I'm 32 weeks. All the best with baby.
I didn't get them first time around, but have done this time. Was wondering if they might stop, or just sort of gradually become actual contractions. So thanks for coming back and letting us know. And congrats on your new DS!
