i seem to be getting plenty of practice contractions lately, but i'm not sure if they're normal or not. basically my belly gets hard and stays that way for what seems like a really long time (like... half an hour sometimes, maybe longer?). it's hard for me to pinpoint when things stop or start so i haven't been keeping track officially. the baby moves around sometimes during, though it's harder to feel it. i've had days when it seems like my belly is hard more than it's not (and that's resting on the couch). if i'm active, like today, the tightness is more uncomfortable, but not painful. i don't feel anything happening with my cervix.
i saw my midwife today and forgot to ask about this?!? way to go, brain! my next appointment is in a week and i'll also have a non-stress test scheduled then, but is this something i should call about in the meantime, or is it normal?
what are YOUR braxton hicks like?
