Dang Braxton Hicks!
I hate the having to pee thing! I wouldn't mind them at all, except for that.
This is totally anecdotal, but the pregnancies where I had the most BH, I also had the most false labour. I have only felt a few so far, and that's less than in my last few pregnancies, so I'm hoping the pattern holds for me.
Hopefully, all of the practice contractions will get me into labor before they stress about the VBAC being safe, and they'll have gotten my uterus into fighting shape.
Oh man, I am having a ton of braxton hicks too and am kinda concerned that they are going to try to put me on bed rest or something. I have probably anywhere from 1-4 a hour it seems and I'm not concerned but I know my Dr is a little conservative and according to their rules you are only allowed 4 a hour max before you get put on rest and get monitored weekly. Really don't want to have to do that again =( and i thought I'd have an easy singleton pregnancy this time around HA.
I got my first one for this pregnancy. I never noticed them with my first. I started getting them about 3 days before my second baby was born and I had them from about now for baby three. I only have had one though. It was not painful at all. Just that tightening sensation. I chugged water just in case. Like you though I was peeing plenty! Especially after all the water I had.
Sheesh, I thought I had it bad. I've been getting very mind ones since I could feel my fundus, only a couple random ones per day. But lately some of them have been getting tighter. Still only random though, except after long walks, I'll get 8 or 10 in a row! I'm sure I'm not dehydrated either.
I had tons with DS. Like, all through the pregnancy but well timed (4 or 5 min apart for hours) for 3 weeks before giving birth. They didn't hurt though so I never thought it was the real thing. Just annoying.
