    This is baby #4 and with my previous babies I never had any braxton hicks contractions...

    But this baby is sooooo active and I have had a few... dr says wild babies can bring on BH:baby:...

    I was just curious if anyone else is getting them this early on...

    With DS2 I got them from about 24 weeks, every 15 bloomin minuets!

    With this one it started just over a week ago, so week 20/21, very strong. Had GP on call out last night as I hurt my back and he was a bit worried about it. But as I've been getting them for over a week he decided it was nothing to do with my back (no shit sherlock). To mention it to my consultant on Wednesday as with DS2 I also went into pre term labour (but got myself out of it by drinking 2 jugs of water in an hour). A few have been as strong as 'proper' contractions too.

    Yes i had them last week and i was so pleased when i saw midwife.She told me not to worry unless they were extremly painful.They just uncofortable - for 3 days i kept getting them on and off - what i thought was a large amount.Spent all weekend resting and its been ok.

    I got worried too thinking is it too early and i sitll do worry but they are "normal" - although they a nuisance :(


    The day before i got them i had done a lot of walking and she said that too can trigger it.My baby is very active too most of the time - except the odd day. x

    So good to hear I am not alone... I can't believe I have never had them before... you definitely can't miss them... :lol:

    I will be happy if they don't come too often :)

    So I ended up going to the doc yesterday...contractions all day.. some short.. some long... some painful... some close together... they checked the cervix and all is well there.. but they think I over did on wednesday.. so I have to "take it easy" for a week... I am exhausted from yesterday.. I hope these contractions don't keep up the whole pregnancy...:sleep:
