    Just curious as to how many braxton hicks you usually get per day? Ive been noticing mine for a couple of weeks now, and have had two so far today i think. One whilst i was in the bath about 1 oclock, and one 10 mins ago. :baby:

    I started getting them (or at least i think i did) quite early, around 28 weeks but I've not noticed them at all recently. Strange :huh: Sorry that was a bit O/T :blush: xx

    I had a few of these when I was around 24 weeks but I've not felt anything since.

    I *think* I get a few in the morning... but I'm really not positive - feels like tightening, so I think that's what it is

    Depends on what I've been up to.. the more active I am, the more I tend to feel them.. or at the end of a long day... if I have a relaxing day, then they are def' not so bad! :).... one thing i was told, if they make you catch your breath or more of a sharp pain than a cramp... call your MW for advice :)
    Hope all ok,

    I get mine mainly in the evening. I used to only get them once or twice a day, and not always every day...they started at around 34weeks. Now I get several an evening.

    I used to get them whenever I did something like change position, stand up, and especially when walking. I probably got 1-2 an hour from 32 weeks on and they started around 28weeks.
