I am now 18 weeks and experienced some BH last night? I didn't have these until much later in my first pregnancy. Anyone experience this as yet? I am currently taking antibiotic Tindamax for BV and I dont know if that has something to do with it. Today is the last day for the 5 day course of Antibiotics.
Braxton Hicks second trimester?
I'm 18w and have been feeling them for the last week or so. Totally off the main topic here, and totally just a suggestion. As someone who is *blessed* with chronic BV I've found a great regimen. I take 1 each of Culterelle, Jarro-Dophilus +fos, and L. Reuteri, each day and within a day or two, a week at the absolute most, I'm totally clear. After many many many rounds of antibiotics, which most times failed to fix the problem, and usually just caused more in the way of side effects, I found some forums online and found that many women use probiotics as treatment and prophylactic with great success and no side effects. I hope this helps
Thanks for the responses everyone...glad to know many of us are in the same boat.
Hi knittin mama...thanks so much for the advice on BV. This is my first time having it ( that I know of). I am all about probiotics and have been taking them faithfully, because I don't want to get a yeast infection because of the antibiotics I just finished taking. I will surely look into the ones you recommended.
I've been feeling them for awhile and forgot to ask at my midwife appt yesterday if it was normal (I've been feeling them since around 16 weeks, when I first felt the baby move). I'm glad others do too at this point. I figured it was just another one of those things that comes from being an experienced prego.
Wow. I never got them with my DS. So far nothing this time yet. I wonder if I will end up getting them this time around. Is it terrible that I kind of would like to at some point? I was induced with my DS and never really felt any contractions until my epidural wore off during the pushing phase. I guess I'd like a chance to practice with BH since I'm planning a natural home birth this time!
