I'm 29 weeks and have had braxton hicks from about 20 wks. Started off about 5 or 6 per week but has steadily increased to 6-8 per day! No pain or any other symptoms, just takes my breath away for a moment! They usually last about 1-1.5 minutes. MW didn't seem concerned last time I saw her, just said as long as they're not painful... Wondering how others get on with them? Any experience of how they affect real contractions/labour?
I have experienced the strongest labour pains and contractiona due to a minor op a couple of wks ago....trust me you will know when your in labour! I dont worey about anything now cus ive had a taster lol im 35wks and i get constant bh every night with dull period aches, midwive and consultants arebt bothered but have told ke if i hve any other signs of labour to call andgo in. They are veey uncomfy as they happening at night when i want to relax x
