Does anyone notice....
they get braxton hicks a lot earlier with each pregnancy? I am getting so many and they are so uncomforatable and even painful sometimes. It's driving me batty. I get one and I have to stop what I am doing sometimes to bear through it.

I haven't had any yet, I had a TON of prodomal labor near the end with my last though, there were SO many times I was just sure it was time.... and it wasn't, lol. Have you tried cal/mag it might help with all the BH contractions.

Re: Does anyone notice....
Yes. I have them EVERY single day. Not a day goes by without one...

They are sometimes intense, sometimes not. I've been having them since 13w this time (fourth kid).

Honestly, even though I've been having them for awhile, they scare me. At times they can feel like real contractions to me (even though I am 90% sure that they aren't), and I am so afraid of PTL it's not even funny. Bah. I just kind of find something else to do to keep my mind off of it, otherwise this is going to be a LONGGG 16 weeks, lol.

Re: Does anyone notice....
I've actually had them less, and they started later. Might be because I don't work on my feet this pregnancy?

I have had a few in the last couple of days and have been trying to slow down. I know if I start having them more I will be put on bed rest :( my youngest son was a 34 weeker due to preterm labor that started at 28 weeks but was controlled by meds and bed rest for a while. Praying this little girl does not take the same route.

Yep. Mine started around 10w this time (related to dehydration from the hyperemesis but still). They are also definitely painful and not just uncomfortable. Thankfully none of them seem to affect my cervix.

Re: Does anyone notice....
I never get them. Then again my babies tend to want to stick around and sometimes have to be induced. I guess my body just doesn't want to practice?

Re: Does anyone notice....
This is my sixth pregnancy and my body is BH happy! But I was having them at the end of the first trimester. I normally get them a lot when lifting my kids or at night. I take them as a cue to stop and drink something.
