    Im just popping over from 3rd tri, hope u dont mind.
    Im 30 weeks gone and have not felt any braxton hicks.
    Did any of you not have braxton hicks and go into labour fairly early?

    Im sure because i havent had them my body is getting ready and im gonna end up goin all the way over and having to be induced :( which i really dont want.

    Hope this makes sense to you, it makes sense in my head haha

    ha ha I was convinced all the way through my pregnancy I was going to be early, then she just wouldn't budge.

    I never had them with Landon and I went into labor naturally the day before his due date. I did have them with my next 2 pregnancies but it didn't change anything on their dates as far as when they ended up being born

    I had them once or twice I think but only like one or two BH each time, and I went into natural labour at 39weeks exactly, lasting only 3 hours 35 mins in total so I wouldn't worry hun x

    I'm 37 weeks and I don't think I have had any, if I have they haven't been painful. I'm the same as you, desperate not to go over!

    You probably just don't notice them yet. 30 weeks is still very early. I noticed mine beginning at 28 weeks, but they were very infrequent. When I hit 36weeks or so, they were very frequent and very noticeable. Anyways, it's nothing to worry about.
