31 weeks - how many braxton hicks per day is "normal?"


Over the last few days i have been getting quite a few braxton hicks contractions. I'd say ive had at least 6 or 7 since yesterday afternoon.

Just wondered if this is normal??

They dont really hurt and dont last very long but i am suprised how often im getting them.


xxxxx

There's no "normal" amount of bh, everyone is different but if you get more than 5 in an hr, be sure to call your mw

That wouldn't be my 'normal' as i have at least 2 an hour. Everyone is different, I have them every 2 mins sometimes and even went to hospital once and they said just ignore the guidelines as it's what is normal for you x

Just as the other ladies said, every one is different.. I get about 15-20 a day I would say, btu nothing regular, so my doctor isn't concerned. If your concerned than talk to your doctor!!

Ditto, some days i'll get 2-4 an hour all day long and some days I can go a few hours with none. Nothing patterned so it's no biggie, my Dr said they aren't concerned unless its over 6 in an hour consistently

If you are worried, go in and have them check you out. I just posted a thread on this about my experience at 31 weeks. I had some 'twinges' down low in my abdomen. I did NOT think they were contractions, because they were mild, but they were frequent enough that I decided to call in. They brought me in and examined me, and I was actually having contractions, and was almost 3 cm dialated11!. I went straight into the hospital, and we caught it in time to stop things, but I am now on bed rest.

I am not saying this to scare you, but if you are concerned AT ALL, all and talk with Dr./Midwife. If I had waited much longer, we wouln't have been able to stop it. I was not having over 6 an hour, btw. I mostly felt pressure, and would get a twinge 2X an hour, max.
