Braxton Hix Complaint - Any other Jan or Feb Mamas

I just gotta complaine - I am sick and tired of these darn Braxton Hix contractions - I wish they would stop. I have had them since 7 months and now they are getting stronger, more regular and just plain annoying. They are not to the point of hurting yet - but getting there. I have them all day, all the time. It use to be every 30 minutes but I know I am having them more often. They even come when they are not suppose to - you know relaxing on the couch.

I only have one month left but I am SOOOO ready to have this little one. I keep telling myself that I have to wait until I hit 37 weeks at least and that is January 18th!

Not having any BH contractions, just some pulling pain in my cervix area. I'm 34 weeks 3 days. Hope you feel better soon.

yup tired of them here too. I have had them pretty strong since 18 weeks this time and they are very very uncomfortable now. I had them really strong with the other boys too so I know that I will probibly end up late as well. I am just hoping that all these contrations will amount to a fast and easy labor
Hope yours get you a quick labor as well!

I am not currently pregnant, but with my last one I had bh ctx for about 9 weeks. I did end up with a pretty easy labor that lasted an hour and a half. Hopefully you'll end up the same.

I would love to have a shorter labor than with my first. I was in labor with her for 20 hours. Gald to hear I am not in this boat by myself and this is perfectly normal. Now - is there a way to make the longs days at work go by faster???

i'm only 25 weeks (tomorrow) and have been having them for at least 4 weeks. they're getting more frequent but not stronger...just more annoying. i'm just hoping it means it will go fast and easily.
