Basically, I've only had BH twice before and they were roughly a week apart. Today I was walking uphill with my OH to go to his mum's and all of a sudden I could not go on (not good walking up hill right now anyway but I had to stop for a minute) as I had BH and they were stronger than I have had before (not sore, just waaay tighter and more uncomfy) this was about 12:30pm and around 2:30-3:00pm roughly I had some more, and I felt very slight cramping for a few seconds
Is it normal to have them that often? And with the crampy feeling?
dont worry unless you get more than 5 in an hour its no reason for concern and even then theres no garuntee they're effecting your cervix! im prime example number 1 i have an irritable uterus, contract 3 mins apart for anything up to 6 hours at a time (i spend ALOT of time at labour and delivery for false alarms better safe than sorry though i guess!)
walking does bring on BH's in alot of women, i find they make mine alot more intense, and i almost feel like i need to bend over forwards the tightening sensation is so great.
also as you get further along, BH's do get more frequent and more uncomfortable try not to worry yourself hun xx
i think its pretty normal for each person to be different i was having contractions every 4 minutes apart the other night, only 32 weeks at the moment so it was scary but i saw the midwife the next day and she didn't seem worried and said everything was ok and has been fine since then so try not to worry x
I was lucky and only got them in the last few weeks of my 1st pregnancy, this time around I've got them since 18ish weeks and walking for a few mins always triggers mine, I find stopping for a fews mins helps and a sit down if possible, also keping hydrated can keep them away so I always take a bottle of water wherever I go. Its just one of those lovely pregnancy things
