anyone getting contractions?

I'm starting week 35 and started getting some BH contractions. I've had several today, though, because my 2 littlest kids have been stressing me out.

do you think it's too early for that?

No, there is a name for those contractions (I forgot right now). I got them for weeks before the due date. Contractions should last a couple of seconds. Noe, if you star having severe ones and the belly gets hard, you might have to call your doctor. Good luck!

I am I was having about 60 a day but I am down to about 20.

I am not sure if mine were BH as I am dilated to 2, thin and soft, I guess they have been doing something and aren't just benign.

Re: anyone getting contractions?

I started getting them about week 28. Now I'm 34+ and they have become stronger and more frequent. Neither the midwives nor the ob's are concerned. They have told me to call if I get more than 6 an hour or if they start coming closer together and stronger.

I can get the contractions to stop if I change what I'm doing (stand up and walk if I'm sitting down, sit down and rest if I'm up on my feet) and drink some water. When I first started getting the contractions they really bothered me because I never had BH with my first pregnancy. Now, I'm not really that concerned about it.

Yep, they come after we dtd so no more of that for at least two weeks because I don't have my work stuff ready yet. I've also had bh ones, but they feel completely different.

Re: anyone getting contractions?

think my Braxton hicks started in the first trimester this time. lol - maybe not.. but very early.

I do think stress can trigger more.

if you're worried, I've always heard 6 in an hour is the time to call.

Not yet and I don't really expect them either. I never even had BH's with DS. That said, I didn't leak with DS either lol
