    i went to see my midwife yesteday, and she was telling me about signs of being in early labour, and then she mentioned braxton hicks, but im pretty sure i havent had this yet, is that weird, with me being this far gone? because i thought not everyone has them but she told me that everyone gets them:shrug: im starting to worry now because i keep thinking that surely i should of experienced them by now?!:wacko:

    You probably have been experiencing them but not realising. I didnt notice with my son that i was having braxton hicks until i was hooked up on their machine and they said your having them, i couldnt even feel them, i wouldnt worry about it, everyone is different :flower: xx

    :confused:so it is possible to have them but not feel them then? i hope this means i have been having them and just not feeling them, im normally such a wimp, but i guess pain to do with pregnancy is nothing like other pains:shrug: xx

    maybe if the practice ones can go unnoticed, we'll handle the real ones really well and hardly feel them... yeah right :haha:

    LOL, that's so not true, I know a few people who didn't experience it during pregnancy.. also my midwife said not everyone experiences it.
    Some people do experience it though but might not know because they haven't got the pain with it, so maybe thats what your midwife means:dohh:

    i know when i have my BH i can't move, first time I had it I wanted to cry I literally couldn't move for 5 minutes it was so bad:nope:
