Belly tightening becoming very frequent


Since I hit 35 weeks, my belly has been hard pretty much 24/7, I'm assuming these are BH. They aren't painful just ALL the time! I can feel my belly hardening literally one after the other. Should I be worried? No blood or anything and bubs moving, just uncomfy. Is this a sign of anything if it's very frequent? I just wanna be 37 weeks now lol

I also get this...I constantly have BH's and checked with the midwife and she said some people just get them more than others but I feel like I just have one massive one throughout the day. I guess it's just our bodies getting ready but still no sign of baby

Yeah I get them a LOT of the time too, they're annoying in a way because each time you kind of hope they'll turn into the real thing! But I suppose we have to be happy that our bodies know what to do and are just practising!

I've been getting them since about 20 weeks, but now they're way more frequent! I hate it, because I'm scared that it's going to turn into the real thing, and I won't know!! DH works on the road, and is away for up to 5 days at a time, and I'm scared that it might be the real thing, and not think it is! Eeek!
