I've been having Braxton Hicks arrive about 14 weeks on a daily basis. It seems that just thinking about it can trigger them. Staying hydrated helps them be less intense. Braxton Hicks contractions help your uterus to tone and be more effective in labor. I figure I'll just squat and the baby will shoot out me at rapid speeds!
