Braxton Hicks

I had BH contractions so hard for about an hour & 1/2 this evening. I think I scared poor Andy half to death! I really was getting concerned when they continued to get harder & more painful. I literally had to breathe through a couple of them...I was mentally packing my hospital bag!!! Can anyone relate to getting them this early and that powerful?

False contractions? That is crazy! I feel bad. I'm sure the real ones are bad enough!

Unfortunately, it gets worse with every pregnancy!

I am actually glad to know this, Shari! I was worried about preterm delivery or something...

During the pregnancy with Samuel I had made quite a few trips to the hospital, false alarms!!!!! With Michael, the second, same thing. By Marcus, the third it was better, but not completely gone!!!!! Good luck, but make sure you get enough REST. That's what triggered mine. Even half an hour can help.

Yep, normal. Shari's right - it gets worse with every pregnancy. You're never sure which time is the real time.
