Regular braxton hicks...

Nearly 33 weeks and seem to get regular bouts of Braxton's. Particularly in the evenings after work. This evening they are about every 5 minutes, not painful but uncomfortable.

Is this normal? I could probably do with drinking a little more, got a pint of water on the go now, but I didn't think they were meant to be this regular this early on.

I'm the same, at my 28w mW appointment I told her about how regular they are & she didn't seem bothered at all!

Yep normal, only if waters go or bleeding then you worry. Can be a bit inconvenient though!

Normal! I had it also from 27/28 weeks.. By 37 weeks they where more frequent not only in the evening even during the day. That my doctor said he will not be surprised if baby arrives any day..
She came 3 day late and I was only in active labour for 3 hours..

But if you are concerned call your midwife she can check if you have dilated
