I never had braxton hicks in my first pregnancy. I went to 41 weeks and was induced.
My 2nd pregnancy, i had 'braxton hicks' one day before i went into labor. I said to my mother
"'so thats what they are like''. In retrospect, they were probably actual labor, and not braxton hicks.
This time, ive had braxton hicks on and off, especially when i exercise, especially pulling my stroller up the subway steps.
I panic that i might go into labor early because ive had more braxton hicks, or that there might be something wrong.
Does anyone know the relationship between braxton hicks and actual labor, or the health of your uterus?
Sometimes drinking rasperry leaf tea gives me what feels like mild braxton hicks.
Are you likely to get more BH each time you get pregnant?
