    Hi ya ladies,
    Just wondered how far were you all when you started to feel braxton hicks contractions? or who didn't get any at all and just went into labour? I haven't had any but have been asked on several occasions have I experienced any tightenings which to my knowledge I haven't. Thanx for any replies.

    You can have them alot and not know it.

    If you were in really good shape (alot of core muscle) prior to being pregnant you might not feel them at all... Which is a good thing, it will make pushing easy for you.

    I could never feel them, I still rode until 7months though... I had a CTG and it was showing all kinds of contractions at 32 weeks but couldn't feel them.

    I had zero braxton hicks with my first baby. With this baby, I've been getting them from early in my 2nd trimester. I hear it's more common with second babies.

    I dont think everyone actually gets them - or so I've been told. I've had them since about 20wks almost constantly!!!

    I had three babies and never experienced BH with any of them. I don't know if my body just didn't know how to go into labour on it's own as I ended up having C-sections for all of them.

    I got my first at 20 weeks. I don't get them often, usually if I've been on my feet too much.
