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.

I definitely found my BH much stronger the 2nd time around, as well as coming more frequently and earlier in the pregnancy. I am pregnant for the 3rd time, and so far it has been very similar to pregnancy #2; thankfully they didn't get any stronger!

With my second pregnancy I had them very intensely. By the last 3 weeks or so they came regularly sometimes and were somewhat painful. Went into labor at 39.5 weeks.

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!
