Currently 32 weeks with DC2. First baby was born at 36/2. Very quick labour with no warning (four hours) I'm now having Braxton Hicks all the time and they are wearing me out and driving me crazy. They seem to be triggered by only the slightest exertion - walking up stairs, getting up from bed etc etc. If I'm really tired they come in big waves. They started around 20 weeks and are getting worse as the pregnancy progresses. I know this isn't necessarily a sign of prem labour, but am ever so slightly freaked out as well as worn out! Anyone else have them this bad? When did you get actual contractions?
your midwife probably knows better than us, but I had loads and went into labour on the due date and had Sprout (first baby) at 40+1. We used the old fashioned way of getting things started cos as I so romantically put it "I'm term now and bloody sick of his feet sticking in my ribs. You HAVE to help me get it out".
Well, glad to hear they didn't signal an early labour for you all! I still have an inkling this one will be early too. In the meantime, just have to put up with feeling so exhausted! Thanks for all responses.
