I am currently 21 weeks and 1 day pregnant with a little boy. He is very very active. My husband was able to feel him at week 18 and we have been able to see him kicking for over a week. My placenta lies near the back so he is right near the front. I have been having 6-10 BH contractions a day, usually spanned apart by 2 hours each. They are not painful and last no more than 45 seconds, my OB said no need to worry. I am still excercising and do not have them when running or lifting weights, usually just at random times. Has anyone else experienced this? I am very concerned about preterm labor.
I've been having BXs since about 18 weeks this time around, and they are getting stronger all the time. I don't think there's any cause for concern, although it does seem a but odd. With my last pg I had BXs every 8-10 mins for 2-3 weeks and still needed to be induced in the end, so no correlation to labour for me!
I have been having BH since 18 wks as well. I get them every day now and some days like today they were really frequent at least twice every hour. I seem to be getting them more if my bladder is full. My consultant told me not to worry unless they become painful.
