I also get BH frequently, but my last pregnancy I got them so often it was very uncomfortable and irritating. I wouldn't say painful, but they pulled so tight across my belly and down into my pubic area, and it was very annoying. My mw suggested lots of RRL tea, as the tea replaces
the work that the BH were doing, apparently. It worked for me- I still got them quite a bit, but on days when I skipped the tea I had so many more. Check with your mw this week and see what she thinks.
This pregnancy I've had fewer. Still everyday, several times, sometimes more frequently, but not in an incapacitating way like last time. Thank heavens!
