Is it my imagination or are they stronger? I remember them from my first pg being more like a sensation that my uterus was getting hard, but this time around, they actually catch my breath away and I ofter have to stop doing what I`m doing and wait it out. There`s no pain though, just a very strong feeling of tightening.
Braxton-Hicks the second time around
This is my 2nd child and didn't have them with my first, I delivered early because of pre-e and never had contractions. I'm near the end of 35 weeks and last night I ended up at the hospital with BH because I can't go into labor because of my prior classical incision and the risk of hemorraging. They told me I was only 1 cm dilated and dehydrated and to load up on water and sent me home. I have two more weeks to go until my scheduled c-section so I am going to be a water drinking machine!
