With my first I never really noticed a time of day when my BH would pick up, but with this baby, right around 7pm (bedtime for DS) I get A LOT of BH, so many tonight that they have been continuous for about an hour.  


So did you go into labor the same time of day your BH contractions would pick up earlier in pregnancy?

With DD2, I had tons of BH at night (or evening....) and went into labor in the early afternoon.  Not so much for me.

with DD I had a lot of BH in the late evening. I woke up in labor at 6am, but I think I was contracting through at least part of the night. so ???

For me I would have BH ALL day (every 5-10 min's apart from 30 weeks on), and I gave birth at 8pm & 9pm (laboring all day).  So I think it did sort of correlate with my labors, because the BH never disrupted my sleep, so maybe I wasn't getting many at night.  Interesting to think about!  We'll see what this one brings.

I always get BHs all day, they get really bad, late afternoonish. I went into labor 3 times at around 4am. shrug.gif

No, not for me. I had most of my BHs during the day, and I went into labor in the middle of the night and had him in the middle of the night the next day.

My strongest BH were at night as the kids were settling down for sleep or in the middle of the night usually after midnight and would stop by 4am.  I went into labor with all my pregnancies early in the after 5am.  So no, they didn't correlate.
