im 25 wks pg and past few weeks have been getting bh contractions, they are getting more noticeable and frequent every 20 mins, not painful just uncomfortable, spoken to mw she said its prob ok, but i cant help worrying, is it ok to get them often, or will they lead to early labour? ive heard there is medication to control them, would anyone bother, or just chill out?

Hmmmm.....well I'm not really the best to answer you as I didn't ever have BH. BUT having said that there were a few times during my pg that on retrospect I should have nipped up to the hospital to get checked out and didn't. It would have saved me loads of worry, which you don't need when your pg. Is it poss for you to get checked over for your peace of mind? Hope all is ok for you

dibleydoughnut... i got this a lot.
Kept thinking I was going into labour, but then they would stop.
I wouldn't think it is anything to worry about, but do call the midwife again if you're concerned
