This is my 2nd pregnancy and I'm just about 37 weeks pg. I get braxton hicks contractions about every 10-15 minutes. Is this normal. My whole belly hardens. I don't feel any pain. I drink raspberry leaf tea every day 3-4 cups. I also had my first child at 38 weeks. Hmmm.

 This is my third pregnancy and i never had noticeable BH with either of the others but this one i stared drinking RLT and sure enough i'm getting quite a few...Im only 32w and not getting nearly as many as you but i would say its definitely an indication that things are working...Good Luck!

Thanks that's what I was thinking too as I'm drinking the RRL tea. I didn't really drink it with my 1st pg either. I hope it makes my labor smoother/easier. I had a 6 hour labor last time and very intense painful last hour so we'll see how this one turns out. Good luck to you!

with my 2nd i had timeable contractions for a week before dd was born, they would last a while, not get any stronger but were timeable. it was a very frustrating week...i was so happy when they turned into actually real contractions
