    ive been getting braxton hicks alot. especially at night. i mean i think its that anyways, could really be labour cos i would have a baby here now. lol..
    is there anything i can do for the pains cos i been getting them quite badly.. or do i just have to wait them out.
    and should i be getting them so much?

    is anyone else getting them?

    i have a antenatal tomorrow with midwife ill ask her then but just wanted some advise from you girls?.. if you can give any?

    thanks if you can..

    I got them quite a lot with Kayleigh, they'd take your breath away, last upto 20 secs, come every 20 mins and last a couple of hours. Just as I thought right i'm going to phone the hospital they'd stop!

    I would time exactly how long they last and how far apart they are. I found sometimes they would vary between 15 mins and 30 mins so knew not to panic, other times they would be 20 mins regular and then i'd start to panic.
