Braxton Hicks

I can't remember what happened with my first 2, although I know I had BH contractions early. I'm about 17 weeks, and just noticed them yesterday. Everything feels tight for a few moments, then goes away. I tend to get a few rounds before it stops completely.

Anyway, has anyone else noticed BH contractions coming on all of a sudden? It's possible it's just taken me some time before I realized what was going on. I'm not worried or anything--just curious!

None for me yet. All I feel is the hard lump of baby that likes to hang out near my hip bones!

Nope just constipation cramps

I usually get them later on. Right now I just feel little kicks and turns.

are you drinking plenty of water? the main cause for BH is dehydration.

Admittedly, I stink at drinking water. I have good days and get my huge bottle of water down (plus the low/no caffeine teas that I love), buuut most days I drink a couple glasses tops. I can see that dehydration could be a factor. I'll make a conscious effort to drink for a few days and see if that helps. Thanks!

Re: Braxton Hicks

I have been having some BH for several weeks now. I asked my Dr about it and she didn't seem concerned and said because this was my 5th pregnancy, I would more likely recognize and feel more nuances of pregnancy.
