    Good evening ladies!

    Today I have been having really strong braxton hicks for most of the day. I had tp go and get a bit of shopping on my way home from work so decided to nip into my local supermarket.

    As I was walking in I had one start and it really was quite strong. I must have looked like I was in a bit of pain as a shop assistant came over to me and was really concerned about me!!

    I was quite touched by her concern so then proceeded to cry all the way round the store!!

    Luckily it was my husbands day off today so I have had plenty of rest and TLC :hugs:

    Just thinking about it now though has made me laugh. I don't fancy giving birth next to the brussel sprouts and parsnips!!!

    lol xx

    they can start really early. They are a good thing as your body is preparing and practising for the big day. I can promise you though, BH feel very different to labour contractions. :)
